Industrial Development and Globalization
2006 (English)In: OSH & Development: Anthology on Industrial Development, The National Institute for Working Life , 2006Chapter in book (Other academic)
The Swedish Association of Occupational and Environmental Health &Development (Ulandsföreningen för arbetarskydd) is a network ofindividuals interested in improvements in occupational and environmentalhealth in developing countries. The Board of the Association came upwith the idea to make a broad anthology on industrial development.Industrial development makes the world go around. While it is creatingresources that increase living standards it is also using resources andcreating problems. The brief articles in this anthology should illustratewhat industrial development is and how it relates to technical componentslike transport, telecommunication and the concept of time. We also hopeto show how industrial development influences and combines with issuesincluding environment, income distribution, culture, human rights,democracy and globalisation. Furthermore, it offers a summary of theways in which individuals are affected by industrial development, e.g.through nutrition, health and accidents.
