The book provides a quick desk reference as well as a resource for preparations for the Associate Safety Professional (ASP), Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Occupational Health and Safety Technologist (OHST), and the Construction Health and Safety Technologist (CHST) examinations. A collection of information drawn from textbooks, journals, and the author's more than 25 years of experience, the reference provides, as the title implies, not just a study guide but a reference that has staying power on your library shelf.

"This book captures the field experiences of the author over a long career in HSE. The book highlights personnel safety requirements in industry and provides a near complete source of information and knowledge for HSE professionals and potential HSE students. The book is essentially a 1 stop shop for H&S knowledge. This in my view along with the rich experiences and easy writing style of the author, makes this book stand out."
