From the Back Cover:

In one volume, this book binds together the traditional examination of time-tested concepts and techniques of safety and health management with a modern perspective on compliance with mandatory standards for workplace safety and health. It is intended to add reason, explanation, and vivid illustration of the hazard mechanisms that form the underlying basis for the volumes of detailed standards for workplace safety and health. Industrial managers know the value of finding the relevant and essential material to understand the "why" behind the myriad of confusing standards so that they can develop a practical strategy for bringing their organizations into compliance. These same managers are charged with the responsibility of reducing Workers' Compensation claims, improving productivity, and enhancing the overall well-being of their employees and their workstations. This is a tall order, and safety and health managers need the practical information contained in this book to carry out their responsibilities.

In four editions and for two decades this college textbook has faithfully provided the practical information needed for pursuit of a career in industrial safety and health management. This new expanded edition embraces today's hottest topics and technologies:

  • ergonomics: today's most controversial and talked-about issue,
  • permit-required confined spaces,
  • lockout-tagout,
  • right-to-know,
  • blood-borne pathogens,
  • program requirements for personal protective equipment, and
  • the new security and safety concerns of the post-9-11 world
FREE CD-ROM

The CD contains a Microsoft Access® database containing searchable information on a full year of OSHA enforcement statistics, including numbers of citations, contested citations, and penalties for alleged violations. Keyword searches can be made on the text content of the cited standards to identify subject areas subject to enforcement activity.

PRACTICE YOUR SKILLS

Prepare for professional CSP or CIH examinations by answering the newly expanded exercises and study questions at the end of each chapter. You'll find answers to many of these exercises on the CD. Then take your study to the next level with new standards research questions that can be searched on either the OSHA website or the searchable database on the CD included with this book. Instructors who use this book in their classes will also have a computerized bank of over 1000 examination questions, each keyed to the pages of this book, plus companion PowerPoint slides to bring their lectures to life.
