Physical and Biological Hazards of the Workplace

Editat de Gregg M. Stave, Peter H. Wald
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 27 Jan 2017
Gregg Stave and Peter Wald s Physical and Biological Hazards of the Workplace is one of the leading references for the practice of occupational and environmental health. During the fourteen years since the previous edition there have been major revisions of government standards and guidelines for physical agents such as manual materials handling, shift work and high–pressure environments, and biological agents including tuberculosis and tick–borne diseases as well as the emergence or spread of biological hazards, including Ebola Virus.

Extensively updated and expanded, this book continues to be a practical "how to" reference for health and safety professionals. The text is logically organized for quick reference, with separate sections devoted to physical and biological hazards. Introductory chapters furnish an overview of each broad class of workplace hazard, followed by detailed entries describing specific causes, agents, and organisms.

Organized according to a common format that encompasses all the information health professionals require:
  • Occupational setting
  • Exposure route and measurement guidelines
  • Normal physiology and pathophysiology or pathobiology
  • Diagnosis and treatment
  • Medical surveillance
  • Control and prevention
  • OSHA and NIOSH standards and guidelines
The contributors include many of the nation′s leading authorities in occupational and environmental medicine. Acting as a first reference this book provides a practical overview for the primary health practitioner. It is also intended to be useful for health professionals who have no formal occupational medicine training. The third edition continues to assist all health professionals who are responsible for protecting the health and safety of workers.
