A highly effective approach to safety and health management in the industrial setting.

Over the past two decades, the role of workplace safety and health professionals has expanded dramatically to encompass not only OSHA compliance, but a host of other regulatory and risk management areas such as fire protection, workers' compensation, insurance, quality control, and more. Defining this new role as the management of safety and resource control, this timely and comprehensive work introduces a unique method for effectively managing both loss prevention and the safety function in the industrial setting. The author incorporates MBO and TQM management techniques as well as contemporary ideas and technologies, providing clear guidelines and discussions on how to implement the new approach to the loss prevention and safety function, including:
* How to use a circular management pattern to design, implement, and manage regulatory compliance programs
* How to deal with emerging risk issues such as ergonomics, tuberculosis, or workplace violence
* How to establish a new goal methodology based on performance rather than injuries/illnesses
* How new technologies affect the loss prevention and safety function
* How to assess one's current program, perform cost/benefit analysis, and build an individual action plan
* How to minimize risks of corporate and individual liabilities
* Where to find information on different federal and state laws and regulations
