Industrial hygienists are being called on to provide expertise in more and more different fields. It is often difficult to keep up with the latest technologies in all these fields. This quick reference includes terms found in journals, books, manufacturers' literature, and other sources used daily by industrial hygienists and others. It is filled with nearly 5,000 terms in industrial hygiene, safety, and occupational medicine, plus relevant terms and abbreviations from acoustics, physics, chemistry, and biology. It contains vital information pertaining to bacteriology, environmental health, epidemiology, illumination, mathematics, medicine, microscopy, mineralogy, and other fields.

Designed in an easy-to-access format, this handy sourcebook also includes terms and abbreviations used by government to enforce regulations in occupational health and safety. All information is presented in simple, non-technical language for easy understanding.

In the health and safety field the disciplines of environmental health, industrial hygiene, occupational health, and safety are managed, supervised, and addressed by single groups instead of separately, as was previously done. As a result the health/safety professionals in industry today must be generalists instead of specialists. This book has been expanded in recognition of the changes in the field of Industrial hygiene.

What's new in the new edition:
Contains 50% more terms, definitions and abbreviations
Increases coverage on each discipline
Includes new entries from other disciplines such as epidemiology, microbiology, indoor air quality environmental health, and sanitation
