Summary

Often, managers who have no experience and very limited time to devote to learning about safety and health hazards are the ones who must be responsible for their employees' safety in the workplace. Written in simple, non-technical language, this book explains what industrial hygiene is, describes a host of health hazards and their effects, and covers regulatory agencies and their requirements.
