Definitions, Conversions, and Calculations for Occupational Safety and Health Professionals, Third Edition, covers virtually every type and category of calculation that environmental and occupational health and safety professionals might encounter on the job. Features include definitions and detailed descriptions of formulas, quantitative relationships, conversion factors, and more.
Includes numerous example problems, drawn from real-life situations, with detailed, step-by-step solutions that do not just provide quick answers but also indicate how the solutions were obtained. Two useful appendices provide a complete list of conversion factors and a first-ever discussion of the effects atmospheric factors can have on measurements.
With almost twice as many calculations as the first edition and over 100 example problems, this is the most comprehensive resource available in the field.
Recommended by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals for candidates preparing to take the examinations for the Certified Safety Professional designation.
