Occupational Safety & Health Guide Series


About the Series

The aim of this series is to develop books to address the myriad of unique topics which are encompassed within the areas of responsibility of a safety professional. The scope of the series is broad addressing traditional occupational safety and health topics as well as emerging and correlating topic areas such as ergonomics, security, labor, school safety, employment, workplace violence, and other topics. Safety professionals often assume a broad spectrum of responsibilities, depending on the organization, which go beyond the traditional safety professional’s role. This series should become the "one stop" source for safety professionals to locate texts on traditional as well as emerging and correlating subjects related to the safety and health function.
