Synopsis

Occupational Safety and Health Fundamental Principles and Philosophies by Charles D. (University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA) Reese

Most occupational safety and health books explain how to apply concepts, principles, elements, tools of prevention and develop interventions, and initiatives to mitigate occupational injuries, illnesses and deaths. This is not a how-to book. It is a book that addresses the philosophical basis for all of the varied components and elements needed to develop and manage a safety and health program. It is a book designed to answer the questions often posed as to why should we do it this way. It is the Why book and the intent is to provide a blueprint and a helpmate for the philosophical basis for occupational safety and health and the justification as an integral component of doing business.

Reviews

This is a big book in terms of size and the scope envisioned by the author. It is well thought through and each of the subject heading leads from one to another in a logical manner. In a market already teeming with OSH texts, the notion of the why of it all is a good one and hopefully this will result in a wide readership. -The RoSPA OS&H Journal, October Issue 2017


About the Author

For 37 years Dr. Charles D. Reese has been involved with occupational safety and health as an educator, manager, or consultant. In Dr. Reese's early beginnings in occupational safety and health, he held the position of industrial hygienist at the National Mine Health and Safety Academy. He later assumed the responsibility of manager for the nation's occupational trauma research initiative at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) Division of Safety Research. Dr. Reese has had an integral part in trying to assure that workplace safety and health is provided for all those within the workplace. As the managing director for the Laborers' Health and Safety Fund of North America, his responsibilities were aimed at protecting the 650,000 members of the laborers' union in the United States and Canada. He has developed many occupational safety and health training programs, which run the gamut from radioactive waste remediation to confined space entry. Dr. Reese has written numerous articles, pamphlets, and books on related safety and health issues. Dr. Reese, Professor Emeritus, was a member of the graduate and undergraduate faculty at the University of Connecticut, where he taught courses on OSHA regulations, safety and health management, accident prevention techniques, industrial hygiene, ergonomics, and environmental trends and issues. As professor of environmental /occupational safety and health, he coordinated the bulk of the environmental, safety and health efforts at the University of Connecticut. He is called upon to consult with industry on safety and health issues and is often asked for expert consultation in legal cases.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
