The essential guide to blending safety and health with effective and economical engineering

Engineers have a moral, legal and ethical responsibility to protect the public in professional practice and in design of products, buildings, processes, equipment, work and workplaces.   Most engineering degree programs place high importance on safety in engineering design and practice.  The overall field of safety continues to  change.  Safety and health professional work demands higher levels of education. Roles of safety and health professionals have shifted from implementing safety details to overseeing strategies, methods and practices that achieve safety. The changing roles reflect the business practice of moving safety knowledge and skills deeper into organizations and workgroups.

Safety and Health for Engineers, 3rd Edition is a comprehensive guide that helps engineers and safety and health practitioners reconcile safety and economic concerns using the latest cost–effective methods of ensuring safety in all facets of their work. It addresses the fundamentals of safety, legal aspects, hazard recognition and control, the human element of safety, and techniques for managing safety and risk in engineering decisions. The third edition features new topics such as

  • Adapting to new safety concerns that arise from technology innovations
  • Convergence of safety, health and environmental departments in many organizations
  • Prevention through design
  • Risk Analysis and Management and Safety Management Systems

Written for engineers, plant managers, safety and health professionals, and students, Safety and Health for Engineers, Third Edition provides the information and tools you need to unite health and safety with economical engineering for safer technological solutions. The new edition continues to help engineers seeking roles in safety and health or expanding such roles.
