Turkey, being an EU candidate country since 1999, is
in the process of transforming its Occupational
Health and Safety (OH&S) governance in accordance
with the EU s expectations thus changing its
legislation and reconstructing its institutional
capacity. Having negative experiences in terms of
high numbers of occupational accidents and diseases
despite its extensive OH&S legislation and the
long-established institutions to implement it, the
new governance of OH&S in Turkey introduced a
different perspective, which tends to transform it
substantially. However, supremacy of the economic
agenda to the social policy as a distinctive
characteristic of candidacy process is challenging
the new OH&S governance in Turkey. This study,
therefore, explores the new governance of OH&S during
Turkey s EU candidacy by building on the stance of
social policy and OH&S in the EU with a particular
emphasis on the new member states. The book will
attract the interests of researchers and students in
the fields of industrial relations, social policy,
European Studies, and political science.
