The Rise and Fall of the Healthy Factory: The Politics of Industrial Health in Britain, 1914-60
improvement, and investigates why these plans never came to fruition. Focussing on the role of the Trades Union Congress, it analyses the politics of industrial health, studying the negotiations which took place between the government, the unions, employers and the medical profession as efforts were made to actualise the vision of the healthy factory and implement a national occupational health service. This book makes a major contribution to debates on health education, the NHS, industrial illness and injury, industrial relations and British politics.

That the book speaks to these diverse audiences is a mark of its success.' - Mike Esbester, Oxford Brookes University, Social History of Medicineshow more
