Identifying safety risks inherent to the chemical industry, this new book identifies steps that safety managers can implement in their facilities to minimize the occurrence and severity of accidents. Drawing together in one volume everything employers need to know about applicable OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards, this book provides expert, easy-to-read insight into interpreting OSHA's chemical manufacturing standards, training requirements, and Hazard Communication Standard. Intended as a reference tool for use in the office and on the production floor, this book allows safety managers to quickly understand complicated OSHA requirements. It removes much of the confusion and stress from the compliance process by providing detailed examples of various required documents and processes. For added convenience, the authors include a sample Hazard Communication Program, a comprehensive and easy-to-use sample chemical hygiene plan, a sample chemical safety program, and a sample chemical industry emergency response plan, all of which conform to OSHA standards.

The success of any food manufacturer's safety program depends on how accurately a facility interprets the laws and how it handles the hazards that workers face on a daily basis. This new 'go to' resource provides industry managers, safety directors, and workers with straightforward answers to complicated OSHA questions. Referencing FDA, USDA, and other regulatory standards as applicable, Occupational Safety and Health Simplified for the Food Manufacturing Industry explains the requirements of the twelve major Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards in Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 29 Chapter 1910 (general industry) and Chapter 1928 (agriculture) for food worker safety and provides examples to help ensure compliance with all applicable standards. Readers will examine the most serious health hazards in the industry, including inhalation of flavorings, radiation, and amputations, and identify ways to prevent accidents from occurring. They will address both industry-wide safety concerns and segment-specific hazards for meatpacking, poultry processing, fruit and vegetable canning, and food flavoring, and find information to help them overcome the language and cultural barriers of the food industry's growing Hispanic workforce to ensure adequate protection for all. A complete sample food manufacturing safety program that meets OSHA requirements and a comprehensive checklist for completing self-audits are included.

People deal with physical hazards every day at the workplace, in their homes, on the roadways, and in many other areas. In any situation, people face potential hazards-often more than one hazard in each situation-and these hazards often lead to serious injury. But it is possible to mitigate the effects of many of these hazards, or even prevent them altogether. In Physical Hazard Control: Preventing Injuries in the Workplace, authors Frank R. Spellman and Revonna M. Bieber focus on controlling physical hazards at work to prevent injury, illness, and death. The book explains the proper controls for many types of physical hazards, including layout and building design, safeguarding of machinery, confined space entry, noise, radiation, ergonomics, electricity, thermal stressors, hand tools, woodworking, welding, machining, mobile equipment, materials handling, and workplace violence. Discussions of engineering controls, administrative controls (including safe work practices), and the use of personal protective equipment are supplemented with real-world examples and solutions. This book presents an up-to-date, practical guide focusing on a variety of physical hazards and controls. It is an informative text for students, a quick reference for safety professionals, a refresher for those preparing for certification, and a practical guide for those who need information on how to control physical hazards in their own places of work.

Safety Professionals know that the best solution to preventing accidents in the workplace boils down to engineering out the hazards. If there isn't any hazard or exposure, there can't be any accident. If you accept the premise that the ultimate method for protecting workers on the job requires the removal or engineering-out of hazards in the workplace, this text is for you. The Handbook of Safety Engineering: Principles and Applications provides instruction in basic engineering principles, the sciences, cyber operations, math operations, mechanics, fire science (water hydraulics, etc.), electrical safety, and the technical and administrative aspects of the safety profession in an accessible and straightforward way. It serves students of safety and practitioners in the field_especially those studying for professional certification examinations_by placing more emphasis on engineering aspects and less on regulatory and administrative requirements. This practical handbook will serve as an important reference guide for students, professors, industrial hygienists, senior level undergraduate and graduate students in safety and industrial engineering, science and engineering professionals, safety researchers, engineering designers, human factor specialists, and all other safety practitioners.

The malicious acts against or within the chemical industrial sector pose a significant threat to both the employees working in the industry, to the communities around them, and to the nation they serve. This new book, the third in a series on critical infrastructure and homeland security, helps chemical manufacturers and processors prevent the devastating effects of such an attack by providing sound security principles and measures that they can implement in their chemical facilities. Addressing the security threats chemical production managers, chemical import managers, design engineers, and others must be prepared to meet on a daily basis, this book encourages a concerted effort to incorporate security upgrades in existing systems or to plan security in all new chemical processing sites. It addresses issues of monitoring, response, critical infrastructure redundancy, and recovery to minimize risk to the facility, the infrastructure, and the surrounding community.
