The industrial workplace should be an environmentally sound and reliable operation with established safety and health policies and practices. Most companies work hard to achieve this goal by having Industrial Safety and Risk Management programs in place. The key benefits of a first-class ISRM program are the reduction of risk to people, environment, assets and production for company personnel, contractors, the public and investors. Professors Wilson and McCutcheon offer an integrated approach to industrial safety and risk management and explain the elements of practice required to manage health, safety and environmental risk effectively. Contributors from industry and government add their expertise to provide a comprehensive examination of issues concerning industrial health, safety and risk management programs; risk assessment and management; causation models and systematic incident investigation; and human factors. Case studies of industrial disasters offer lessons in how to proactively reduce risks in operations or projects. Industrial Safety and Risk Management provides a solid base for students and industry to implement, manage and improve their understanding and knowledge of safety and risk management programs. It provides an excellent training program for new professionals, junior managers and supervisors working in industry.

A practical guide for eliminating safety and health hazards from construction worksites, the Handbook of OSHA Construction Safety and Health addresses the occupational safety and health issues faced by those working in the construction industry. The book covers a vast range of issues including program development, safety and health program implementation, intervention and prevention of construction incidents, regulatory interpretations, understanding, and compliance, OSHA's expectations, health and safety hazards faced by those working in the construction industry, and sources of information. Highlighting contract liability and multi-employer sites, this second edition features updates for construction regulations, construction job audit, training requirements, and OSHA regulations. It includes new record-keeping guidelines and forms with additional material on focused inspections. Containing updated contact information for the newest agencies, the text also presents a model safety and health program, examples of accident analysis and prevention approaches, sample safety and health checklists, and more than 200 illustrations. Taking a comprehensive approach to construction safety and health, the authors address issues seldom discussed in the construction arena such as perceptions and motivation while also discussing issues gleaned from the safety and health disciplines such as the analyzing of incidents and accident prevention techniques. Including an in-depth discussion of regulations promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the book lays the foundation upon which to build stronger safety and health initiatives, while intervening and preventing jobsite deaths, injuries, and illnesses.
