More About This Textbook

Overview

Need to know the fundamentals behind occupational safety and health law? This highly anticipated new edition of a popular handbook provides you with an authoritative and up-to-date reference that you'll quickly rely on for straightforward explanations. This comprehensive book provides managers, engineers, and professionals with reliable and practical guidance information from experienced attorneys. Using a minimum of legal jargon, the authors provide interpretations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act's key aspects, review regulations and standards governing employee protection, and offer advice for dealing with regulatory authorities. You'll discover how to keep your workplace safety-and-health programs in compliance, you'll better understand your legal responsibilities and rights, and you'll ensure compliance confidence in your workplace. This handbook covers all of the important legal aspects of the Occupational Safety and Health Act with clearly written explanations and insights covering such issues as the boundaries of OSHA regulations, general administrative law concepts, and OSHA's enforcement tactics. This new edition now also explains what the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is and why OSHA has taken steps to conform the Hazard Communication Standard to the requirements of the internationally developed GHS for Hazard Classification and Labeling. It provides 'Practitioner's Tips,' useful legal guidance given by experienced attorneys for complying with OSHA inspection regulations and enforcing employers' and employees' rights during inspections. It describes changes to the probable cause test under OSHA's 'Warrant Requirement.' It also covers the legal and practical consequences to a business not contesting OSHA citations, OSHA's use of 'Monitoring Devices on Employees,' and more.
