 ABOUT THE TITLE
For senior/graduate-level courses in Industrial Safety, Industrial Engineering, Industrial Technology, and Operations Management.

Unique in approach, Industrial Safety and Health Management, 6th Edition 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, explanations, and illustrations of the hazard mechanisms that form the underlying basis for the volumes of detailed standards for workplace safety and health.

The new edition focuses on more of the real issues future safety and health practitioners will encounter, such as dealing with enforcement, protecting workers from ergonomic hazards, and accommodating the latest advances in process technology.

Features
Free CD with text-Comprehensive database of nationwide OSHA inspection statistics. Shows revealing inspection statistics on individual OSHA standards using a searchable database. This proprietary database is not available on the OSHA website or anywhere else-it is for the exclusive use of students and instructors using this text.

Strong fundamentals. Provides students with an understanding of the entire realm of industrial safety and health, and gives them the tools and understanding they'll need as professionals. Management essentials for the safety professional are covered early on, followed by coverage of the complete spectrum of safety and health hazards. The organization of the text around the most highly cited issues in industrial safety and health allows readers to focus not on thousands of pages of standards but on key information that will allow them to succeed.

Current, relevant content. Holds students' interest with discussions of real-life problems rather than academic theory.The authors add new content every edition to make this one of the most current texts available. The new edition focuses on more of the real issues future safety and health practitioners will encounter, such as dealing with enforcement, protecting workers from ergonomic hazards, and accommodating the latest advances in process technology.

Case studies. Numerous case studies demonstrate the rationale behind the standards with example scenarios.

Chapter-opening pie charts. Shows the percent of OSHA citations addressed by the topics covered in that particular chapter.

Comprehensive, chapter-end exercises-Over 600 in total. Gives students practice and familiarity with the principles covered.

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.

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. In addition to its down-to-earth writing style, the text features vivid pictures and real-life case studies-all of which work together to bring the subject matter to life.

Broad appeal. Appeals to both technical and non-technical audiences. Difficult technical concepts are explained in a down-to-earth, readable style, and vivid examples and case studies show the “why” behind safety and health standards.

Several appendices. Gives students easy access to tables of information commonly used in professional practice.

Exercises and quiz questions. Learning is reinforced with hundreds of student exercises and a quiz bank of over 1000 questions that instructors can assign, keyed to page numbers of the text.

New to this Edition
A totally revised chapter on ergonomics (Chapter 8). This chapter now provides more insight into this timely and controversial topic, specifically ergonomic hazards and how they can be mitigated. A new section entitled Ergonomic Risk Analysis identifies the various risk factors associated with ergonomics, uses an analysis tool to quantify several of them, and gives real examples of a variety of problems and their solutions.

An extensively revised database of OSHA citations. The database now gives users access in a hierarchical fashion, and a view of the associated standard verbiage.

For an example of use of the revised database of OSHA enforcement statistics, see example Exercise 16.44.

Expanded Chapter 4 - Impact of Federal Regulation. Additional information on the standards development process, the manner in which OSHA deals with new hazards, and in-depth information on the inspection and citation process.

Expanded Chapter 15 - Machine Guarding. Now includes modern concepts of industrial robots and heat processes for sealing and joining of components.
