This Handbook was written to serve two convergent purposes. First, the Handbook helps managers comply with standards, rules, and regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (or OSHA for short). At the same time, the author also shows how occupational safety and health issues may be managed for best organizational results. The author believes that, while compliance with OSHA is important, the ultimate goal of management is to control workplace hazards because this function is intrinsically worthwhile, satisfying, as well as, profitable. Each employee must be protected from workplace hazard because he or she is, first, a person, and then, a valuable asset to the organization. In addition to managers, this book will be of benefit to engineers, industrial hygienists, senior executives, first line supervisors, and all other persons whose jobs are touched by OSHA and by issues of workplace safety and health. The Handbook provides theories and techniques for the management of occupational safety and health. The material includes general information on the organization and workings of OSHA, as well as, in-depth specifics on OSHA standards and procedures. It sets down the foundation for understanding OSHA in particular and occupational safety and health in general. With understanding, a good, even excellent OSHA compliance and occupational safety and health management program may be designed and implemented within any organization. The reader will note that the Handbook is written from the multidisciplinary standpoint, as it well should be for the field of occupational safety and health draws its information from many different fields of knowledge. As the author is apracticing attorney, as well as a hands-on certified industrial hygienist, over 150 important case decisions are cited with their case report references, and the Author's commentary in this Handbook.
