The recognition and control of hazards in the work environment is the cornerstone of every company's safety and health plan. There are dangers in every workplace, especially those devoted to technology, machinery, and potentially hazardous material. Employers and their management teams must understand the regulations that provide for facility safety. The successful implementation of these legal standards is required for the profitable and legitimate management of any business.
Physical Hazards of the Workplace addresses environmental and occupational dangers on the factory floor and in the office. The author explores OSHA, DOT and other federal, state, and local regulatory compliance codes. He explains how to implement these regulations for the prevention and minimization of the growing number of hazards found in work environments.
The author devotes individual chapters to dangers related to machines, the respiratory system, the circulatory system, confined spaces, chemicals, personnel, cumulative trauma, environmental issues, electricity, noise, fire and explosion, and the risk of falling. One key chapter discusses issues of emergency and disaster preparedness. The useful appendices concisely detail OSHA training requirements, posting standards, and more.
