While there are numerous technical resources available, often you have to search through a plethora of them to find the information you use on a daily basis. And maintaining a library suitable for a comprehensive practice can become quite costly. The new edition of a bestseller, Safety Professional's Reference and Study Guide, Second Edition provides a single-source reference that contains all the information required to handle the day-to-day tasks of a practicing industrial hygienist.

New Chapters in the Second Edition cover:

  • Behavior-based safety programs
  • Safety auditing procedures and techniques
  • Environmental management
  • Measuring health and safety performance
  • OSHA’s laboratory safety standard
  • Process safety management standard
  • BCSPs Code of Ethics

The book provides a quick desk reference as well as a resource for preparations for the Associate Safety Professional (ASP), Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Occupational Health and Safety Technologist (OHST), and the Construction Health and Safety Technologist (CHST) examinations. A collection of information drawn from textbooks, journals, and the author’s more than 25 years of experience, the reference provides, as the title implies, not just a study guide but a reference that has staying power on your library shelf.

Review:

"Solid, detailed and a text worthy of use by experienced safety professionals as well as those entering the field. As a possible single source of comprehensive information, the Safety Professional’s Reference and Study Guide is worthy of inclusion on the bookshelf of anyone interested in or working in the field."
―Daniel G. Hopwood, MPH, ARM, CSP, Cuyamaca Community College, El Cajon, CA

"Written in simple language, easy to understand the concept in occupational health and safety practice; quite a number of helpful examples to illustrate the problems. A comprehensive reference book or text for a training course in OSH as well as for revision for preparation of the CSP examination."
―TSIN Tai-wa, Hong Kong Institute of Occup & Env Hygiene

"This book captures the field experiences of the author over a long career in HSE. The book highlights personnel safety requirements in industry and provides a near complete source of information and knowledge for HSE professionals and potential HSE students. The book is essentially a 1 stop shop for H&S knowledge. This in my view along with the rich experiences and easy writing style of the author, makes this book stand out."
―Dr. Chitram Lutchman
