Overview

This new edition of the critically acclaimed Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety was designed to help safety officers, laboratory managers, principal investigators, and laboratory workers bring lab health and safety into the twenty-first century. It does this by presenting a timely, complete, and easy-to-implement approach to ensuring a workplace that is safe for its workers as well as the surrounding community. Further, the handbook lays out guidelines to help laboratories comply with the requirements set by OSHA, the EPA, FDA, DOT, DEA, and other relevant regulatory agencies.

While the overall philosophy that made the first edition so successful has remained the same, the book has been extensively revised and updated to reflect all new regulations and technical advances that have occurred in the field over the past five years. In addition, this Second Edition now features a multitude of sample forms, checklists, protocols, and other valuable documents that will become an indispensable part of any laboratory health and safety management program.

A valuable reference tool for those seeking detailed information and guidance on specific safety and health issues, Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety, Second Edition is also much more. By providing a set of clear, easy-to-follow guidelines that serve as a rational framework for creating site-specific health and safety requirements, it, in effect, arms laboratory managers with a solid foundation upon which to build—or reengineer—a comprehensive program for identifying, managing, and controlling health and safety hazards in the laboratory. All of the authors' recommended guidelines are clearly presented in the section entitled "Suggested Laboratory Health and Safety Guidelines." Each chapter of the handbook refers to the relevant sections of the Suggested Guidelines, explains the basis for the recommendations, and provides guidance on how to comply. Offering a feasible, easily implemented approach to designing and maintaining a safe workplace, Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety is an indispensable tool for all those responsible for safeguarding the health and safety of lab workers and the residents of the ambient community.

"R. Scott Stricoff...and Douglas B. Walters...have assembled information from a variety of sources that is not easily available elsewhere....This is a useful book." — Chemical & Engineering News

"...provides a useful contribution and will be a welcome addition to the laboratory safety adviser's library....the authors' breadth of knowledge and expertise gives a genuine sense of authority to the information given." — Chemistry and Industry

"...useful for laboratory managers and safety officers who are in charge of the safety of workplaces, but it is also useful for laboratory architects and designers, supervisors, and others in charge of planning safe laboratories. Employees will also find information on the handling of toxic samples and chemicals....Although the book follows American standards and regulations, its interest may be considered worldwide. The book is especially useful in practical safety work because it explains thoroughly how to build a safe and pleasant laboratory and how to maintain its safety." — Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment and Health
