This updated edition of an introductory textbook on occupational safety and health (OSH) provides comprehensive coverage of laws and regulations, safety and ergonomics, human factors, terrorism and violence, hazardous materials, and other workplace dangers. Friend and Kohn espouse the philosophy that occupational illnesses and injuries are preventable. The historical survey in chapter 1 is excellent. Particularly strong chapters are `Workers' Compensation and Recordkeeping' and `Ergonomics and Safety Management.' The latter is detailed and reflects the authors' backgrounds and expertise. Chapter 9, `System Safety,' is sufficiently detailed to be useful in program development, including setting up and conducting a job safety analysis and basic skills for an OSH practitioner. Discussions of legal and economic issues are interspersed throughout. Overall, the book is strongest in safety topics, with excellent coverage of accident response and investigation. . . .This is a workable textbook for a one-semester course. Summing Up: Recommended. All students, faculty, and professionals/practitioners. * CHOICE *
