Summary: For senior/graduate-level courses in Industrial Safety, Industrial Engineering, Industrial Technology, and Operations Management.

Unique in approach, this text combines--in one volume--an exploration of the time-tested concepts and techniques of safety and health management, a modern perspective on compliance with mandatory standards for workplace safety and health, and a variety of solved problems, case studies, and exercises. It provides reasons, explana moretions, and illustrations of the hazard mechanisms that form the underlying basis for the volumes of detailed standards for workplace safety and health.

    • Shows revealing inspection statistics on individual OSHA standards using searchable database, not currently available on OSHA's or any other website.

  • Discusses and draws from the new and readily available sources of information now accessible to the Safety and Health Manager-- e.g., the OSHA CD-ROM computer database, the Internet, in addition to conventional library resources.
    • Empowers students to readily find their own answers to questions on safety and health management.
  • Provides "Research Exercises" which require students to go beyond the text for answers -- to the Internet, the OSHA CD-ROM, or comprehensive conventional libraries.
    • Extensive use of diagrams and figures.
  • Clearly illustrates concepts that are confusing as detailed wording of federal standards--e.g., alternative guarding methods for punch presses.
    • Easy-to-read, informal writing style--Incorporates humorous anecdotes.
  • Enlivens what is typically considered dull reading, and enlightens students as to the history of controversial issues such as OSHA inspections, remarkable oversights, and the evolution of standards.
    • Several appendices.
  • Gives students easy access to tables of information commonly used in professional practice. less
