Description

Prepare for stricter OSHA standards and prevent costly workplaceinjury and illness! Safety and Health Management in the NinetiesMilton J. Terrell, CSP Effective management of employee safety andhealth is crucial to reducing the number, severity, and cost ofworkplace injuries and illnesses. Yet less than half of today's420,000 midsize industrial companies have any safety and healthprogram in place for their personnel. What's more, many companiesthat attempt to establish safety programs don't come close tomeeting proposed government standards, which will soon become thelaw. A widely respected safety and health consultant, MiltonTerrell provides you with the step-by-step guidance you need todevelop a complete and effective safety and health program--onethat will enable you to comply with imminent federal legislation.Terrell's Safety and Health Management in the Nineties accomplishesthis by drawing from the comprehensive guidelines set by theOccupational Safety and Health Administration's VoluntaryProtection Program. It's the only book on the market today thatuses this model and translates its formal provisions into clear,concise information you can readily use. With the help of thebook's practical worksheets and other visual aids, you'll soon beable to:
* communicate your safety and health policy and set programobjectives.
* engage workers, managers, and executives in the safety and healthprocess.
* create distinct lines of responsibility for safety among companypersonnel.
* compile an inventory of potential workplace hazards and identifygaps in the safety and health program.
* devise a hierarchy of management systems to prevent and controlhazards.
