Regulations to promote health and safety may be costly relative to the expected health and safety benefits, and may actually have negative effects on health and safety. These negative effects, or costs, may be due to reduced private spending on health and safety, moral hazard, or the creation of new risks. This volume considers the use of costs–benefit analysis, risk–risk analysis, and health–health analysis to determine the mortality cost associated with regulatory expenditures.
