The essential guide to blending safety and health with economical engineering

Over time, the role of the engineer has evolved into a complex combination of duties and responsibilities. Modern engineers are required not only to create products and environments, but to make them safe and economical as well. Safety and Health for Engineers, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide that helps engineers reconcile safety and economic concerns using the latest cost-effective methods of ensuring safety in all facets of their work. It addresses the fundamentals of safety, legal aspects, hazard recognition, the human element of safety, and techniques for managing safety in engineering decisions. Like its successful predecessor, this Second Edition contains a broad range of topics and examples, detailed references to information and standards, real-world application exercises, and a significant bibliography of books for each chapter.

Inside this indispensable resource, you'll find:

  • The duties and legal responsibilities for which engineers are accountable
  • Updated safety laws and regulations and their enforcement agencies
  • An in-depth study of hazards and their control
  • A thorough discussion of human behavior, capabilities, and limitations
  • Key instruction on managing safety and health through risk management, safety analyses, and safety plans and programs

Additionally, Safety and Health for Engineers includes the latest legal considerations, new risk analysis methods, system safety and decision-making tools, and today's concepts and methods in ergonomic design. It also contains revised reference figures and tables, OSHA permissible exposure limits, and updated examples and exercises taken from real cases that challenged engineering designs. Written for engineers, plant managers, safety professionals, and students, Safety and Health for Engineers, Second Edition provides the information and tools you need to unite health and safety with economical engineering for safer technological solutions.

Book News Annotation:

This update of the 1990 edition reflects changes in safety and health technology, regulations, and standards as well as the increasing role of computer technology in this field. Brauer (safety engineering, U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), who is in the Safety and Health Hall of Fame International, reviews the role of engineering disciplines and other professions involved in safety, economic and legal aspects of accidents and exposures to environmental hazards, and preventive and control strategies against such. Chapters include exercises and review questions. OHSU tables on permissible exposure limits to toxic and hazardous materials and ergonomics data are appended.
