Safety professional’s reference and study guide.

Yates, W. David.

CRC Press


542 pages




Safety consultant and manager Yates assembles information and

insights he has acquired during his career into a broad reference that

is missing from the safety profession but he thinks could prove very

useful. He suggests that it can be used as a quick desk reference for

experienced practitioners, as a supplementary textbook for university

students, and as a primary study guide for people preparing to take one

of the safety certification examinations. Among his topics are

regulations and record keeping requirements of the US Occupational

Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), particulates and gases,

industrial hygiene, noise and OSHA’s hearing conservation program,

thermal stressors, training, accident causation and investigation

techniques, and hazardous materials management.
