The Fourth Edition of On the Practice of Safety makes it possible for readers to master all the core subjects and practices that today's safety professionals need to know in order to provide optimal protection for their organizations' property and personnel. Like the previous editions, each chapter is a self-contained unit, making it easy for readers to focus on select topics of interest.

Thoroughly revised and updated, this Fourth Edition reflects the latest research and safety practice standards. For example, author Fred Manuele has revised the design chapters to reflect the recently adopted American National Standard on Prevention through Design. In addition, readers will find new chapters dedicated to:

  • Management of change and pre-job planning
  • Indirect-to-direct accident cost ratios
  • Leading and lagging indicators
  • Opportunities for safety professionals to apply lean concepts
  • Role of safety professionals in implementing sustainability
  • Financial management concepts and practices that safety professionals should know

Many chapters are highly thought-provoking, questioning long-accepted concepts in the interest of advancing and improving the professional practice of safety.

Acclaimed by both students and instructors, On the Practice of Safety is a core textbook for both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in safety. Safety professionals should also refer to the text in order to update and improve their safety skills and knowledge.
