Over the decades since the first edition of Hamilton & Hardy’s published in 1929, industrial toxicology has undergone significant growth and changes. Today, there are more than 70,000 industrial chemicals in common use, but regulatory agencies struggle evaluating risk and establishing standards and exposure limits for all of them.
That is where this new edition of an acclaimed reference comes in – a concise resource that offers a wealth of information on industrial exposures and toxicants, with expert contributors having distilled a vast amount of toxicity information about major occupational and industrial chemicals. Detailing all aspects of industrial exposures and toxicants, this book employs the succinct chapter format that has become the hallmark for the previous editions.
Organized by substance and including the latest research on industrial toxicants, the sixth edition of Hamilton & Hardy’s Industrial Toxicology:
· Updates and expands coverage with new chapters covering regulatory toxicology, toxicity testing, physical hazards, high production volume (HPV) chemicals, and workplace drug use
· Includes information on occupational and environmental sources of exposure, mammalian toxicology, industrial hygiene, medical management and ecotoxicology
· Aids toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and occupational physicians to investigate workplace health problems.
Featuring contributions by frontline international experts from academia, industry, and regulatory agencies; Hamilton & Hardy’s remains a must-have reference for anyone involved in occupational and environmental health, safety, and toxicology.
