Standing firmly on the foundation built by the previous two editions, each a bestseller in its own right, Definitions, Conversions, and Calculations for Occupational Safety and Health Professionals, Third Edition is bound to repeat this success. A multipurpose reference suitable for professionals throughout the field, the book contains virtually every mathematical relationship, formula, definition, and conversion factor that any professional will ever need or encounter combined with example problems and step-by step solutions. The book has been carefully crafted to reflect the best of current thinking and technological understanding of these concepts as used in the field.

See what's new in the Third Edition:

  • Expansion of the concepts covered in each chapter

  • New chapter on Mechanical Vibration

    Based on the professional experiences of the author and his colleagues, the sample problems and detailed solutions provide a complete roadmap that leads from the problem statement itself all the way to an eventual solution. A useful technical resource, the book identifies "how to calculate it" and "what does that mean", bringing together in one volume an array of definitions and calculations that are either widely scattered throughout, or not available at all, in any of the various other reference materials.
