Long Description
Just how comprehensive is your company's safety plan? If it doesn't include the eight key components of industrial safety addressed in this new book, your facility may be unnecessarily vulnerable to physical damage and property losses. Emphasizing a complete safety management system design, this book shows you how to set up and maintain a company-wide safety plan that includes both safety and environmental concerns. You'll examine the eight major elements of a safety plan--including hazard communication, accident investigation, emergency response, and fire prevention--and discover detailed guidance, tips, and examples for each. Whether you're updating an existing safety program or building a new plan, this useful reference will provide you with tools, including forms and documents, for making critical decisions concerning workplace hazards and your company's ability to prevent and react to them. Author Daniel Della-Giustina addresses such advanced management concepts as Participative Management and Quality Circles and discusses how to incorporate them into all phases of the business. This new edition also addresses the impact that the September 11 attacks have had on designing and structuring a safety, health, and loss-control program. Each chapter includes an overview, summary, questions, and case studies.
