About this Book

The field of industrial hygiene has evolved, with personnel often working for multinational firms, at small consulting firms, or being self-employed. Their environment has changed and expanded, and so have the types of information and resources required as a result. The traditional areas of interest to occupational health and safety professionals include anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of potential hazards. In addition to these topics, Patty’s Industrial Hygiene provides information and reliable resources to prepare for natural disasters, exposures to biological agents, and potential acts of terrorism. This cornerstone referencepresents valuable information on the recognition and evaluation of chemical agents, physical agents, and biohazards in the workplace, as well as engineering control of exposure and personal protection.
