Summary

Most of the industrial hygiene books on the market present traditional/basic fundamentals of the discipline. This book will distinguish itself because it integrates risk management techniques into managing and protecting workers and the public. The application and integration of risk into the implementation of an IH program has not been addressed in detail in previous books to the extent of how the two programs can be effectively used by companies and practicing Industrial Hygienists. This new book provides a comprehensive, innovative, and risk-based approach to managing an IH program with benefits that include a more operations approach to health and safety management for companies.
