Overview

A fully updated and expanded edition of the bestselling guide on toxicology and its practical application

The field of toxicology has grown enormously since Industrial Toxicology: Safety and Health Applications in the Workplace was first published in 1985. And while the original edition was hugely popular among occupational health professionals, the time is ripe to address toxic agents not only in the industrial setting but also in the environment at large. Renamed Principles of Toxicology: Environmental and Industrial Applications, this new edition provides health protection professionals as well as environmental scientists with precise, up-to-date, practical information on how to apply the science of toxicology in both the occupational and environmental setting. Through contributions from leading experts in diverse fields, Principles of Toxicology, Second Edition features:

* Clear explanations of the fundamentals necessary for an understanding of the effects of chemical hazards on human health and ecosystems

* Coverage of occupational medicine and epidemiological issues

* The manifestation of toxic agents such as metals, pesticides, organic solvents, and natural toxins

* Special emphasis on the evaluation and control of toxic hazards

* Specific case histories on applying risk assessment methods in the modern workplace

* Ample figures, references, and a comprehensive glossary of toxicological terms
