"By making the case for the merging paths of the occupational and environmental safety and health professions, Vincoli justifies this combined reference tool, a comprehensive and lengthy resource. Words, terms, and phrases from 54 specific areas are defined, ranging from biostatistics, chemistry, and ecology to ergonomics health care, law and litigation, and workers' compensation. The practicing professional who has responsibilities in both occupational and environmental safety and health, Vincoli claims, must be familiar with the "language of the profession." Lewis' meets this need…A significant contribution…highly recommended for reference collections in academic, public, and special libraries, as well as for individual practitioners."-Choice Magazine, March 2000
