More About This Textbook

Overview

This new, very special purchase option brings together the new International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors, Second Edition, three volumes in print and on CD-ROM and the new, two-volume Occupational Ergonomics Handbook. Together, these outstanding resources form a complete library that no ergonomics or safety professional can afford to be without.

The previous edition of the International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors made history as the first unified source of reliable information drawn from many realms of science and technology and created specifically with ergonomics professionals in mind. It was also a winner of the Best Reference Award 2002 from the Engineering Libraries Division, American Society of Engineering Education, USA, and the Outstanding Academic Title 2002 fromChoice Magazine. Reflecting the copious amount of new information provided, the Handbook has been divided into three volumes. Organized into 13 sections and arranged alphabetically within each section, the entries provide a clear and simple outline of the topics as well as precise and practical information.

Completely revised and updated, taking the scientific rigor to a whole new level, the second edition of the Occupational Ergonomics Handbook is now available in two volumes. This new organization demonstrates the enormous amount of advances that have occurred in the field since the publication of the first edition. The editors have brought together researchers from a wide range of disciplines with pioneering practitioners in industry to cover a diverse list of ergonomics topics. The second edition not only provides more information but makes it more accessible.

The Occupational Ergonomics Reference Library includes five print volumes and a CD-ROM.
