Safety Management: A Guide for Facility Managers, Second EditionThis book provides a cross-comparison of “old” vs. “new” OSHA standards, as well as an update on employer compliance requirements to the ADA.
Facility managers are the professionals most responsible for integrating people with their physical environment. As such, they often find themselves facing a myriad of complexities and challenges.
Among these complexities is the issue of safety, along with the concomitant challenges of accelerating regulatory activity, OSHA inspections, soaring workers’ compensation costs, increased employee litigation, the Americans with Disabilities Act and violence in the workplace.
Each of these challenges requires greater effort on the part of employers in identifying, correcting and preventing safety and health hazards.
Awareness and proactive management can turn the challenges into opportunities—and a more productive workforce that works with management to ensure a safe working environment.
Safety Management: A Guide for Facility Managers, 2nd ed. addresses the complexities, opportunities and challenges of safety in detail, explaining how to systematically identify, evaluate and prevent general and specific hazards.
At the core of this 2nd edition is the recognition that corporations and other organizations have a moral, ethical and legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for all people who enter their facilities.
