Safety engineering: principles and practices
Government Institutes, 1999 - Technology & Engineering - 459 pages
In 1995, the National Safety Council estimated that workplace accidents cost the United States more than $75 billion dollars, killed 11,000 workers, and left more than seven million others injured or ill, despite strict OSHA regulations. Frank Spellman and Nancy Whiting examine how such accidents and fatalities happen and how to eliminate or reduce on-the-job hazards through preventive planning and safety engineering and management.In 35 chapters, Safety Engineering: Principles and Practices presents a clear and thoughtful picture of this complex field and stresses the importance of engineering as both a part of the corrective process and as a part of the design process. Topics covered include Engineering Concepts, Accident Investigation, Ergonomics, Confined Space Entry, Electrical Safety, Emergency Response, Fire Safety, HazCom, PSM/RMP, Safety Inspections, and more.
