Description : Leadership in Safety Management James R. Thomen "I thoroughly recommend this book as a must for all managers interested in improving safety standards and quality levels." —Safety at Work Using techniques that made DuPont a leader in worker safety, the chief architect of that highly successful program shows how to make safety a company wide task—one that unites every echelon and department and raises the safety consciousness of each worker. Complete with explicit guidelines and case studies, the book is a blueprint for creating an optimally safe work environment, with tips on: how management can transform itself into a leader in issues of health and safety; standards of performance, including safety and standard operating procedures as well as engineering design standards; constructive safety auditing; and injury/incident investigations, emphasizing management’s role in accident prevention. 1991 (0-471-53326-2) 400 pp. Patty’s Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology Volumes 1A and 1B: General Principles Fourth Edition Edited by George D. Clayton and Florence E. Clayton "(These) are works that all workers in the field of industrial health should have access to.…" —Annals of Occupational Hygiene In the tradition that has made these volumes an industry classic, the Fourth Edition has now widened its focus on environmental safety and hazard control to include conditions beyond the industrial workplace. Featuring important new information on visual display terminal safety, biological agents in the workplace, and indoor air pollution, Volume 1A of the new two-volume edition also contains up-to-date discussion of legislation and legislative trends; occupational health concerns in the health care field; designing an industrial hygiene laboratory; potential exposures in the manufacturing industry; and agricultural hygiene. Enlarging on the discussion begun in 1A, Volume 1B examines occupational epidemiology; asbestos management in buildings; lighting for seeing and health; ergonomics; and more. Volume 1A: 1991 (0-471-50197-2) 1,079 pp. Volume 1B: 1991 (0-471-50196-4) 1,120 pp. Handbook of Health Hazard Control in the Chemical Process Industry Sydney Lipton and Jeremiah Lynch The ultimate guide to keeping your chemical plant operation safe and up to standard in the ‘90s, this "bible" on hazard control for the process industry examines the impact of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the new allowable release rates for "air toxic" chemicals, as well as the latest technological innovations in exposure control. This authoritative reference lays out the basic procedures for exposure evaluation, emissions measurement and estimation, sampling, and exposure assessment, and catalogs the full range of exposure sources from fugitive emissions and major process hazards.

Description : Founded on the paradox that all things are poisons and the difference between poison and remedy is quantity, the determination of safe dosage forms the base and focus of modern toxicology. In order to make a sound determination there must be a working knowledge of the biologic mechanisms involved and of the methods employed to define these mechanisms. While the vastness of the field and the rapid accumulation of data may preclude the possibility of absorbing and retaining more than a fraction of the available information, a solid understanding of the underlying principles is essential. Extensively revised and updated with four new chapters and an expanded glossary, this fifth edition of the classic text, Principles and Methods of Toxicology provides comprehensive coverage in a manageable and accessible format. New topics include 'toxicopanomics', plant and animal poisons, information resources, and non-animal testing alternatives. Emphasizing the cornerstones of toxicology-people differ, dose matters, and things change, the book begins with a review of the history of toxicology and followed by an explanation of basic toxicological principles, agents that cause toxicity, target organ toxicity, and toxicological testing methods including many of the test protocols required to meet regulatory needs worldwide. The book examines each method or procedure from the standpoint of technique and interpretation of data and discusses problems and pitfalls that may be associated with each. The addition of several new authors allow for a broader and more diverse treatment of the ever-changing and expanding field of toxicology. Maintaining the high-quality information and organizational framework that made the previous editions so successful, Principles and Methods of Toxicology, Fifth Edition continues to be a valuable resource for the advanced practitioner as well as the new disciple of toxicology.
