Raw technical data from an engineering perspective makes this guide a uniquely useful tool. It contains information on common industrial gases and chemicals in a concise, handy format—checklists for exhaust fan maintenance, indoor air contaminant sources, and much more. Chapters include terms and equations, monographs and charts, thermal conditions, ergonomics, PPE and respirators, standards and guidelines, and sound and noise.
A reference library at your fingertips! This convenient summary of current, pertinent, practical information for OEHS professionals covers such topics as ventilation, noise, heat stress, ionizing and nonionizing radiation, respiratory protection, ergonomics, illumination, and more. The manual also provides general conversion tables, rules of thumb, and a variety of formulas, figures, and charts.
Written in simple, understandable terms, the IAQ and HVAC Workbook’s 25 chapters cover an overview of IAQ issues, investigation techniques, management of IAQ, management control strategies, air contaminants, and how building air handling systems work. Additionally, air behavior and principles of ventilation, fans, air intakes, HVAC ductwork, testing, commissioning, and troubleshooting HVASC systems are discussed. Readers will learn how to read plans and specifications, as well as the application of the latest version of ASHRAE 62, standards and codes. Government activities and how to handle non-standard conditions are also presented. The Appendix provides 7 charts, 9 forms, 28 checklists, references, a glossary and the index.
The Industrial Hygiene Workbook contains copious facts and information about the occupational health sciences in 26 sections. Updated regularly, its contents include IH history, math and statistics, management, chemistry, physiology and anatomy, toxicology, occupational medicine, laws, codes, standards, air sampling, methods of control, ventilation, respiratory protection, PPE, IAQ, air pollution, ergonomics, heat and cold stress, noise, radiation, safety, and others. Each chapter provides a short overview of the topic, a list of facts and concepts to know, calculation procedures and examples. The final section provides 800+ multiple-choice questions to test knowledge and help the reader prepare for exams.
The information in this second edition was developed by experts with background, training, and experience in industrial hygiene with information and conditions existing at the time of publication. The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA®), as publisher, and the authors have been diligent in ensuring that the material and methods addressed in this book reflect prevailing occupational health and safety and industrial hygiene practices. It is possible, however, that certain procedures discussed will require modification because of changing federal, state, and local regulations, or heretofore unknown developments in research..
This classic self-study Workbook is revised and updated regularly. This publication takes the reader from introductory concepts through advanced materials in 21 chapters. Readerfriendly, the book concentrates on practical applications. An appendix containing forty charts, forms and graphs is keyed to the text. Written for OH&S professionals and IH engineers, the Workbook is an excellent companion to the ACGIH Vent Manual and college textbooks. Home study courses based on the book are available from the author.
This updated work presents a systematic and comprehensive approach to exposure models and their advantages. Its 17 chapters discuss general principles of physical and chemical models, dermal exposure models, exposure reconstruction, and more. The models are being used more frequently and creatively as these techniques for worker exposure modeling are improving rapidly. It is a practical tool for any professional concerned with exposure assessment and management.
This leading noise resource is specifically written for those vwith a technical interest in noise and for anyone whov desires an improved general understanding of the subject. It addresses noise-related issues within the workplace and those arising in the community.
Meet today’s critical issues and challenges as an occupational health and safety practitioner, educator, or student with the tools, methodologies and knowledge provided in this reference. Its 53 chapters include information on hazard recognition andevaluation, physical agents, the human environment, controlling the occupational environment, program management, and much more.
AIHA’s Toxicology Principles for the Industrial Hygienist, the most comprehensive toxicology reference, is written by industry experts specifically for the industrial hygienist.
