Prepare for stricter OSHA standards and prevent costly workplace injury and illness! Safety and Health Management in the Nineties Milton J. Terrell, CSP Effective management of employee safety and health is crucial to reducing the number, severity, and cost of workplace injuries and illnesses. Yet less than half of today's 420,000 midsize industrial companies have any safety and health program in place for their personnel. What's more, many companies that attempt to establish safety programs don't come close to meeting proposed government standards, which will soon become the law. A widely respected safety and health consultant, Milton Terrell provides you with the step-by-step guidance you need to develop a complete and effective safety and health program--one that will enable you to comply with imminent federal legislation. Terrell's Safety and Health Management in the Nineties accomplishes this by drawing from the comprehensive guidelines set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Voluntary Protection Program. It's the only book on the market today that uses this model and translates its formal provisions into clear, concise information you can readily use. With the help of the book's practical worksheets and other visual aids, you'll soon be able to:
* communicate your safety and health policy and set program objectives.
* engage workers, managers, and executives in the safety and health process.
* create distinct lines of responsibility for safety among company personnel.
* compile an inventory of potential workplace hazards and identify gaps in the safety and health program.
* devise a hierarchy of management systems to prevent and control hazards.
* develop an occupational health delivery system tailored to meet the specific needs of your company.
* establish ongoing safety and health training to help workers understand hazards and protect against them.
