Overview

Surpassing the standard set by the first edition, Healthcare Hazard Control and Safety Management, Second Edition presents expansive coverage for healthcare professionals serving in safety, occupational health, hazard materials management, quality improvement, and risk management positions. Comprehensive in scope, the book covers all major issues in the field. It presents information on physical, chemical, biological, ergonomic, and psycho-social hazards in an organized format.

In addition to providing easily digested information, the author has constructed practical checklists and forms that can be readily put to use. He provides advice and guidance on management, hazard control, compliance, standards, and accreditation. Updates to the second edition include additional information on leadership, performance improvement, risk management, organizational culture, behavioral safety, root cause analysis, new OSHA and Joint Commission requirements, and regulatory changes.

And if that weren't enough, the book supplies a blueprint for developing training and education programs, provides more than 25 appendices addressing healthcare-related safety topics and OSHA issues, and includes more than 30 safety checklists that cover a variety of hazards found in healthcare and long term care facilities. Not only will you use this reference on a daily basis, you may find yourself reaching for this book so often that it will not stay on your bookshelf.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Kurt Kleparski
This new book provides a broad review of hospital safety management and features detailed discussions of hospital hazard control as well as OSHA and JCAHO regulatory requirements. This book is intended as a self-study guide for hospital safety professionals who plan to take the Certified Healthcare Safety Professional examination. The author has succeeded in providing a detailed overview of all of the major hazard control issues found in hospital organizations. It includes a discussion of JCAHO requirements, but they are not the primary focus of this book. Written for established healthcare safety professionals preparing for board certification, this book is also quite valuable for someone newly assigned to the role of safety officer in a healthcare organization. The latest changes in OSHA and JCAHO regulations are discussed. Within the narrative are many valuable tables. Highlights include chapters devoted to a detailed glossary of terms, sample management plans, and detailed inspection checklists. The tables, glossary of terms, sample management plans, and the detailed inspection checklists make this book a valuable addition to a hospital safety officer's library. I would use this book as a reference handbook on hazard control in the hospital workplace. Because of its detailed explanations of complex regulations, it is not an easy read.
