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 were not 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.
