"Dr Reese has provided a good summary of the many different topics that a student of health and safety must be familiar. The text makes each topic understandable and emphasizes the important elements. But the text is also written for a practicing health and safety manager who can use the questions provided in each chapter to quickly evaluate their own program. ... A student or a practicing professional, should have this text at the top of the stack."

"... accurate and well researched. The material is a very good update to the previous two editions from Mr. Reese particularly the new section on terrorism. It is timely and more important, "New".
