From the Back Cover:

Industrial Safety and Risk Management "For budding engineers, future business leaders or anyone else coming in contact with any manner of industrial operation, Industrial Safety and Risk Management contains a wealth of valuable information touched by years of first-hand know-how and effective commitment to the preservation of life and limb in the workplace and beyond." James E. Carter, President and Chief Operating Officer, Syncrude Canada Ltd. The industrial workplace should be an environmentally sound and reliable operation with established safety and health policies and practices. Most companies work hard to achieve this goal by having Industrial Safety and Risk Management (ISRM) programs in place. The key benefits of a first-class ISRM program are the reduction of risk to people, environment, assets and production for company personnel, contractors, the public and investors. Professors Wilson and McCutcheon offer an integrated approach to industrial safety and risk management and explain the elements of practice required to manage health, safety and environmental risk effectively. Contributors from industry and government add their expertise to provide a comprehensive examination of issues concerning industrial health, safety and risk management programs; risk assessment and management; causation models and systemic incident investigation; and human factors. Case studies of industrial disasters offer lessons in how to proactively reduce risks in operations or projects. Specific topics include: n governmental regulations; n professional responsibilities, including due diligence; n provincial regulatory agencies; n role of Worker's Compensation boards; n contractors' roles and industry guidelines; n small company programs; n safety for young workers; n risk communication and public emergency response; n computer systems and communications; n importance of team empowerment; and n senior management involvement in building a successful ISRM program. Industrial Safety and Risk Management provides a solid base for students and industry to implement, manage and improve their understanding and knowledge of safety and risk management programs. It provides an excellent training program for new professionals, junior managers and supervisors working in industry.
