Occupational Safety and Health Simplified for the Chemical Industry Book’s cover

This text has been written in simple and understandable terms, making it easy to follow for professionals and nonprofessionals alike. However, it is important to note that it is in fact simplified. Compliance with the law can only be achieved by consulting the actual Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in this case, 29 CFR 1910 General Industry Standards (the “OSHA bible”) applicable Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Regulations, and various Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) HazMat regulations dealing with emergency response procedures. While this book gives a simplified and easily understandable version of the regulations, you must go to the regulations themselves in order to ensure complete compliance with the law and, more importantly, to ensure the protection of employees. Occupational Safety and Health Simplified for the Chemical Industry includes:

  • Basic chemical safety precautions
  • How to prevent accidents from the most serious hazards in the chemical manufacturing industry, such as
    • Respiratory hazards from inhalation of chemicals
