Did you ever imagine that Occupational Safety and Health could rival James Bond as a gripping thriller full of espionage, high-octane danger, and a time-critical mystery to solve? Well, you don’t have to, as Leila Kirk does just that in her debut novel, Cast Doubt.
Hal Rogers is a savvy occupational hygienist and protagonist of this corny crime-thriller, who - fuelled by his passion for keeping people safe - finds himself neck deep in a high-stakes case of industrial espionage, through which he delivers information on the risks of exposure to metalworking fluids, how to identify emissions of mist in torchlight, how to apply the hierarchy of controls and more on his quest for answers, and justice.
This rib-tickling, gripping tale is an alternative learning resource for health and safety professionals, offering an action-packed insight into the realities and practicalities of occupational hazards without the dangers of actually experiencing them.
"Cast Doubt is a field trip, a case study, pre-course introduction that requires no risk assessment, no data protection nightmare, nor logistical juggling"
says Leila Kirk, Chartered Occupational Hygienist and Author of Cast Doubt.
Cast Doubt is the first novel in a new book series by the Fatal Factories project, spearheaded by Kirk, which is an ambitious project aiming to bring the control of key industrial health risks into the realms of high-octane thriller Fiction.
Kirk’s mission is simple: to raise awareness about the importance of occupational hygiene through her exciting, evocative fiction.
