The fifth edition of this popular handbook provides a thorough and up-to-date overview of the occupational safety and health field and the issues safety professionals face today, and does so in an accessible and engaging manner.
An excellent introductory reference for both students and professionals, Fundamentals of Occupational Safety and Health provides practical information regarding technology, management, and regulatory compliance issues, covering crucial topics like organizing, staffing, directing, and evaluating occupational safety programs and procedures.
Author Mark Friend addresses all major occupational safety and health topics in this comprehensive volume, including safety-related laws and regulations, hazardous materials, workplace violence, the threat of terrorism, and OSHA's recordkeeping standard. This new edition has been updated to keep up with new regulations and statistics, and it includes a brand new chapter on transportation safety. Two chapters have also been completely rewritten to reflect current practice-those on Industrial Hygiene and Terrorism Preparedness.
The volume includes a handy directory of resources such as safety and health associations, First Responder organizations, and state and federal agencies. This directory, together with the text, gives readers a wealth of occupational safety and health information right at their fingertips.
