Occupational Health & Safety (3rd Edition)

Addressing the span of expertise necessary to develop health and safety programs for companies of any size can be daunting and often requires a multi-specialty team of professionals. This edition of the National Safety Council’s Occupational Health & Safety is designed for those who are responsible for implementing health and safety programs but who have not been formally trained in the field. It is also intended to serve as a general guidance for corporate managers, human resource professionals, and others who interact with health and safety managers. The overall goal of this textbook is to describe the professionals needed, programs they can provide, methods of evaluating programs, and the emerging issues in the field of occupational health and safety. This completely revised edition edited by Marci Balge and Gary Krieger gives students a foundation for a strong compliance program in facilities of all sizes and functions.

Topics include:

  • Workplace exposures
  • Shift work stress
  • Radiation safety
  • Occupational stress
  • Ergonomics and back injuries
  • Fitness programs
  • Substance abuse
