While industrial hygienists are expert deliverers of high-quality technical service, most of them lack the management skills necessary to meet all the challenges of their field-a regrettable situation since most are thrust into managerial positions within a few years of entering the profession. Implementing a broad, multi-disciplinary approach, Industrial Hygiene Management is the first book to deal exclusively with the subject-a milestone in the field literature because it emphasizes the necessity of today's industrial hygienist to grow beyond the traditional role of program manager to that of corporate manager. Designed to provide study material for the American Board of Industrial Hygiene certification exam questions on management, Industrial Hygiene Management is written by a number of hygiene managers from various areas of the field-industry experts who learned to manage the hard way: on the job. Chapter topics include:EthicsGeneral management principlesManagement style/systemLine organizationCorporate management of industrial hygiene programs at foreign locationsCommunicating information about chemical hazards to the public and pressManaging process safety to prevent catastrophesRegulatory complianceLiabilityIndustrial hygiene laboratoryData managementProgram evaluation and auditProfessional developmentAdministrative education and trainingHow to get the most out of consultantsHow to work with non-occupational health professionalsRecruitingSalaries and gradesBudgeting
