Physical and Biological Hazard Reference Guide from C.H.I.P.S.

Physical and Biological Hazards of the Workplace

Second Edition
by Peter H. Wald
and Gregg M. Stave


This extensively updated and expanded book continues to be a practical "how to" reference for health and safety professionals. It gives a practical overview for the primary health practitioner, including basic information on either the physical type or underlying biology of workplace hazards from an occupational health perspective.

Material included is divided into two sections: one on physical hazards, and the other on biological hazards. Topics range from electromagnetic fields, ionizing radiation, and ergonomics to occupational exposures to tuberculosis, HIV, and hantavirus.

Readers will find helpful current information on a broad array of hazardous agents with a selection of timely literature citations for follow-up review. All health professionals involved in protecting worker health and safety will find this work a valuable addition to their libraries whether seeking a quick general introduction or a refresher to a topic in physical and biological hazards.
