Drawing on author Charles Reese’s 23 years of experience as a safety manager and educator, Occupational Health and Safety Management: A Practical Approach presents a total management approach to a broad range of issues in occupational health and safety. Reese covers every facet of safety and health management with real-world examples and strategies. He provides succinct yet thorough coverage of important and timely concepts and practices commonly used in the safety field.

More than just a text filled with information, this is a true how-to book. The author discusses how to write a program, how to identify hazards, and how to involve workers and attain their cooperation. He goes on to explain how to use identification and intervention tools such as hazard hunt, audits, and job hazard analysis. He provides a listing of potential resources, encourages developing a working relationship with OSHA, and how to go about determining which regulations are applicable to you or your employer’s workplace and how to find assistance and sources that will help you guide your organization to compliance with OSHA regulations.

The book incorporates the development of written programs, the identification of hazards, the mitigation of hazards by use of common safety and health tools, and the development of a safe workforce through communication, motivational techniques, involvement, and training. Covering a wide array of occupational health and safety topics in one cohesive single-authored volume, Occupational Health and Safety Management: A Practical Approach is a blueprint for developing and managing a safety and health initiative tailored exactly to your company’s needs.
