Abstract

Paper presented at Understanding the Past and Facing the Future: Labour and Working Class History in Scotland Scottish Labour History Conference. The paper was based on a journal article and enagaged with the theory of masculinity and culture of machismo within male dominated industries. Using oral history narratives the paper argued that workers had limited control at the point of production and rather then take risks within a culture of machismo were more likely to be pragmatic when forced to work in dangerous and risky working conditions.
