Developed to provide safety and health students with an understanding of the how-tos of implementing an occupational safety and health initiative, the first edition of Occupational Health and Safety Management soon became a blueprint for occupational safety and health management for the smallest- to the largest-sized companies. Competently following in these oversized footsteps, the updated and expanded second edition continues to provide a comprehensive approach to the development and management of safety and health in the workplace. See What's New in the Second Edition: * Coverage of behavior-based safety and financing health and safety * Expanded attributes of accident reporting * How to make better use of accident investigations * Revised information regarding multi-employer worksites and outsourcing * Additional sections on professionalism and ethics * Violence section expanded to cover the topic of bullying This book takes a total management approach to the development of written programs, the identification of hazards, the mitigation of hazards by the use of common safety and health tools, and the development of a safe workforce through communications and training. The author covers motivational techniques including behavior-based safety, involvement, and training, and addresses tracking and acceptable risk from both safety and health hazards. He provides the strong foundation students need to function as effective managers of workplace safety and health. Not just an informational text, this how-to book demonstrates how to write a program, identify hazards, involve workers and conduct their hazard hunting audits, and analyze job hazards using checklists, illustrations, diagrams, figures, photographs, and tables that clarify the content.
