Volume 3 covers Recognition and Evaluation of Physical Agents and Recognition of Biohazards. Almost all of the chapters in the section Recognition and Evaluation of Physical Agents are new. Three new chapters are in the section on Biohazards: Bioaerosols, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacteria Communicable Diseases. These subjects are increasing in importance to industrial hygienists.
