Safety and health for engineers, 2d ed.
Brauer, Roger L.
This update of the 1990 edition reflects changes in safety and health technology, regulations, and standards as well as the increasing role of computer technology in this field. Brauer (safety engineering, U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), who is in the Safety and Health Hall of Fame International, reviews the role of engineering disciplines and other professions involved in safety, economic and legal aspects of accidents and exposures to environmental hazards, and preventive and control strategies against such. Chapters include exercises and review questions. OHSU tables on permissible exposure limits to toxic and hazardous materials and ergonomics data are appended.
