Publisher's Summary:
This handbook provides the tools necessary to create and maintain a safe work environment. It provides a starting point for any chemical safety study, from providing information on proper chemical and equipment handling to guidance on purchasing, storage, use and disposal. The safe use of specialized equipment is outlined and answers to both simple and complex questions related to workplace and environmental laws and regulations help keep you in compliance with the strict regulatory world. Emergency preparedness plans are given, enabling facilities to pre-plan for most emergency situations and spill prevention and cleanup plans are included. In addition to these chemical safety topics, this book includes industrial hygiene issues, radiation safety practices, safe laboratory and facility design criteria, bio safety issues and more. This is the single most useful how-to guide available on issues related to chemical safety and will be an absolute necessity in any lab, chemist, chemical hygiene officer or safety specialist's workplace.
