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...show moretions, and illustrations of the hazard mechanisms that form the underlying basis for the volumes of detailed standards for workplace safety and health.
NEW--CD--Includes NCM Database and new OSHA forms. Free with text.

Detailed enforcement statistics.
Supplies students with all the technical data and specific information available--at a level of detail not usually found--on government standards and the system of enforcement needed to deal with the most important problems--e.g., welding fumes and gases, press safeguarding, etc.

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.
