The new Safety Engineering provides an overview of the fundamentals with expanded coverage of practical information for protecting workers and complying with federal regulations.

This edition also examines the safety industry's new homeland security responsibilities and needs. Written for a wide variety of readers, including safety directors, supervisors, government officials, and students, this handy yet comprehensive reference book looks at the paperwork side of safety: identifying regulatory requirements, conducting accident investigations, preparing an emergency response plan, preparing for inspections, and complying with recordkeeping requirements.
