About this item
The Handbook progresses from a general introduction on management to recognition of hazards to safety evaluations and risk assessment. It continues on the health side starting with chemical agents and ending with medical surveillance. The next section that follows concerns control practices followed by physical hazards (although it contains a chapter on “Occupational Dermatoses”). The last section is on legal issues and includes workers compensation.
The book is completely revised and removes or combines chapters with marginal value such as applying computer simulation to occupational safety and health, ensuring quality in a medical surveillance program, applying the microcomputer to occupational safety and health, and providing liability industrial coverage while adding new and timely topics including prevention by design, machine guarding, statistics for safety and health, safety and health management systems, safety and health management of international operations, EHS auditing, safety and health in product stewardship, and safety and health in sustainability
