A practical, solutions-driven reference, Safety Engineering, 4th edition, has been completely revised and updated to reflect many of today’s issues in safety. In addition to thoroughly updating and revising the wide range of topics that are fundamental to the safety profession, this edition includes many new topics, including: a national safety initiative; a global emphasis on safety; new focus on human error; the case for “business safety”; and safety through design. Dr. John W. Mroszczyk, the new Editor for this fourth edition, has authored an entire chapter on the last topic, “Prevention Through Design,” which posits that injuries and fatalities can be reduced by incorporating safety engineering principles into products and projects early in the design stages. There is also an updated and revised chapter of case studies to provide practical examples of the principles discussed in the book.
Safety Engineering, 4th edition, brings the peer-reviewed knowledge of safety professionals to address the most frequently encountered hazards through proven principles and best practices. Those preparing for professional safety careers will find the concise presentation of occupational safety and health principles a valuable foundation for career development.
