From the Back Cover:

Innovative, systematic approach to occupational SAFETY ANDHEALTH

Integrating the fields of occupational safety, industrialhygiene, and ergonomics, this text enables readers to anticipateindustry hazards and implement tested and proven strategies toavoid, whenever possible, or minimize the harm and damages. Theauthor's innovative systematic approach organizes the thousands ofhazard control measures in use today into nine fundamentalrisk-reduction strategies.

Risk-Reduction Methods for Occupational Safety and Health isorganized into five parts:

  • Part I, Background, sets forth fundamental principles anddefines key terms essential for understanding concepts exploredthroughout the text

  • Part II, Analysis Methods, describes essential system safetytools for occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals

  • Part III, Programmatic Methods for Managing Risk, explorescommon components of OSH programs, synthesizing all risk-reductiontactics into nine core risk-reduction strategies

  • Part IV, Risk Reduction for Energy Sources, examines hazardsinvolving kinetic energy, electrical energy, acoustic energy,thermal energy, fires, explosions, pressure, electromagneticenergy, and weather and geological events

  • Part V, Risk Reduction for Other Than Energy Sources, addressesworkplace hazards, chemical substances, biologic agents,musculoskeletal stressors, and acts of violence

Throughout Parts IV and V, the author explains how current OSHpractices fit within the nine risk-reduction strategies set forthin Part III. End-of-chapter exercises in all chapters help readersapply their newfound skills and knowledge to solving common OSHchallenges.

With its unique systematic approach, Risk-Reduction Methods forOccupational Safety and Health is not only recommended as atextbook for OSH students, but also as a reference for OSHprofessionals around the world, providing them with a new, morestreamlined approach to their work.
