This is the standard work in the field of industrial hygiene. Occupational health hazard control, to be cost-effective, should be made an integral part of the production process. A proper mix of engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment is basic to occupational safety. This two- volume work presents safe, practical, production processes, and is written by professionals who have hands-on experience and are cerified in the practice of industrial hygiene. It covers organic and inorganic materials of a wide range of toxicities, from low to high; materials handling, from small to large quantities; and effective controls for each process and material covered. Controls descrived are often applicable to processes not specifically described in these volumes. The work should be of benefit to industrial hygienists, engineers, compliance officers and toxicologists.
