It provides twenty consistent, quick-reference chapters, each focusing on a major concern of occupational safety and health and how it affects productivity, quality, and competitiveness on the job. Up-to-date research is integrated throughout in a down-to- earth manner, and Application Scenarios highlight management scenarios based on actual events that occurred in real organizations.
