Safety and Environmental Management Daniel E. Della-Giustina Members of management realize that their plants can suffer huge loses, including physical damage and loss of productivity, if they fail to institute complete safety and environmental programs for their workers. The pressure to effect these changes is even greater in light of today's emphasis on risk management and OSHA's willingness to penalize companies heavily for safety violations. Safety and Environmental Management will assist professionals in making the critical and time-consuming task of developing and maintaining a company-wide safety plan easier. Organized according to eight major components of industrial safety and management, this easy-to-use, hands-on resource provides you with all the how-to advice, tips, examples, forms and documents you need to develop and maintain a thorough safety program to keep your workers healthy and comply with government regulations. This book offers seasoned guidance on how to:Alert workers to the presence of potentially dangerous chemicals and other hazardous substances - through the use of Material Safety Data Sheets, worker training, product labeling, and other measures.Investigate, analyze, and report accidents - including guidelines for processing workers' compensation claims. Respond effectively to emergency situations and disasters - with procedures for creating general emergency and disaster recovery plans.Prevent fires and minimize losses - including proper controls on hazardous materials.Reduce equipment-related injuries through proper lockout/tagout procedures - complete with a safety checklist to ensure nothing is forgotten.Decrease the risk of cumulative trauma disorders through better ergonomics - with advice on devising a tailor-made ergonomics program.Minimize the problems posed by confined spaces - from physical hazards to psychological disorders.Safety and Environmental Management draws on today's most advanced management concepts - such as Participative Management, Quality Circles, and TQM - to help you incorporate safety and environmental practices into all phases of the plant as well as maintain and improve your essentially preventive program. Invaluable if you're building a safety program from scratch, Safety and Environmental Management is also highly useful if you're seeking to upgrade your present safety efforts. In addition, it works effectively as a preparatory tool for anyone who is about to take the demanding Certified Safety Professional Exam.
