This series will contain monographs, references, and professional books on a compendium of knowledge in the interdisciplinary area of environmental engineering, which covers ergonomics and safety and the protection of human health in the working environment. Its aim consists in an interdisciplinary, comprehensive and modern approach to hazards, not only those already present in the working environment, but also those related to the expected changes in new technologies and work organizations. The series aims to acquaint both researchers and practitioners with the latest research in occupational safety and ergonomics. The public, who want to improve their own or their family's safety, and the protection of heath will find it helpful, too. Thus, individual books in this series present both a scientific approach to problems and suggest practical solutions; they are offered in response to the actual needs of companies, enterprises, and institutions.
