The 6th edition of the Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene builds on four decades of excellent and dedicated work of previous contributors to one of the National Safety Council's cornerstone textbooks. Since 1971, experts from a wide variety of subject areas have come together to make the FIH an important asset for those interested in and directly responsible for the recognition, evaluation, and control of occupational hazards.
This update edited by Barbara A. Plog and Patricia J. Quinlan continues in that tradition, bringing to the industrial hygienist, safety professional, and medical professional a broad discussion of workplace hazards, control procedures, government regulations, and environmental issues. The Fundamentals of Industrial Hygiene features extensively updated information in all chapters. New or completely rewritten chapters include Particulate Matter, Ionizing Radiation, Personal Protective Equipment, Environmental Health and Safety, Government Regulations, and International Developments in Occupational Safety and Health.
This new edition is a valuable resource serving industrial hygienists and safety professionals with years of experience, but can also be used as instructional textbook for industrial hygiene courses. (Click on Downloads on the right to find supplemental materials to accompany the textbook.) The FIH continues to provide a wealth of information that can be incorporated into the goals and objectives of any organization's occupational hazard control program.
