For over fifty years, Patty's has served as the standard reference for occupational health and toxicology professionals. Now in its Fifth Edition, Patty's has been completely revised and updated. All topics have been logically clustered and broken out into two discrete works - Patty's Industrial Hygiene, 5th Edition, 4-Volume Set, and Patty's Toxicology, 5th Edition, 9-Volume Set - making information retrieval easier and faster than ever. All volumes within each set will be published simultaneously and can be purchased individually or as a set.

Thoroughly revised and updated, Patty's Industrial Hygiene, 5th Edition presents cutting-edge 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. Legal and regulatory issues and management aspects of industrial hygiene, plus specialized topics and allied professions are also covered.

Featuring improved format and complete reorganization of the material, Patty's Toxicology, 5th Edition presents comprehensive toxicological data for industrial compounds in logical groupings, from metals to synthetic polymers. Information for each compound includes CAS numbers, RTECS numbers, physical and chemical properties, threshold limit values (TLKs), permissible exposure limits (PELs), maximum workplace concentrations (MAK), and biological tolerance values for occupational exposures (BAT). Coverage also includes major issues in toxicology assessment as well as other forms of toxic agents.
