"... an excellent `first look' go-to book for practicing safety and health professionals."---Michael R. Roop, CSP (Roco Rescue founder, expert witness, and author)

"I am a consultant to small businesses, and for many of these companies, a concise overview of safety is exactly what they need... Gary Chambers' new book is concise, just like it says in the title... definitely useful."---William H. Weems, Dr. P. H., CIH, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa

Written to make this important discipline more understandable. Concise Guide to Workplace Safety and Health: What You Need to Know, When You Need It systematically addresses, for each of the 34 topics covered, core issues such as relevant regulations, required program elements and definitions of key terms.

Organized for quick access to information, this handy reference book demystifies required documentation, training elements, medical requirements, recordkeeping, and more. Conveniently, the author uses the same 20-part format for every topic. For example, if you want to know only about the documentation required, you can immediately turn to a topic's Section 9 (Written Documentation Required); if training requirements are the issue, simply go to a chapter's Section 12 (Training Requirements). Also provided for each topic are links to quality background and training information, with sample forms and programs where available.

The Guide covers safety and health topics of interest to a wide cross section of industries and businesses. The author's relaxed yet focused approach and consistent format allow efficient access to a broad range of occupational health and safety information. The topics covered include not only those that are currently regulated, but also emerging issues such as injury and illness prevention programs, and the rapidly growing field of nanotechnology.

!concise -- just like is says in the title ! approach is useful for people who know next-to-nothing about the safety and health field ! definitely useful and it is accurate. --William H. Weems, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, USA
