This book is an adapted proceedings of a conference cosponsored by the American Psychological Association and the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH), held on November 15-17, 1990, in Washington, DC. It presents selected introductory remarks, a reprint of the NIOSH "Proposed National Strategies for the Prevention of Leading Work-Related Diseases and Injuries: Psychological Disorders," and papers delivered at three centerpiece panel sessions: (a) Health Promotion, Education, and Treatment; (b) Surveillance of Psychological Disorders; and (c) Work Design and Stress. The panel papers are followed by comments by panel participants. The final section contains an invited address delivered by preeminent scholar and researcher Lennart Levi, Chair of the Department of Stress Research of the Karolinska Intitutet in Stockholm, Sweden, and a reprint of a monologue from "The Department" by playwright Barbara Garson, which was delivered as part of the central luncheon address. The volume focuses on many issues involved in the prevention, measurement, and treatment of psychological disoorders that potentially arise within the work environment and situation and reviews some of the most current research.

Electrical safety : safety and health for electrical trades : student manual by Thaddeus W Fowler( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This manual will present many topics. There are four main types of electrical injuries: electrocution (death due to electrical shock), electrical shock, burns, and falls. The dangers of electricity, electrical shock, and the resulting injuries will be discussed. The various electrical hazards will be described. You will learn about the safety model, an important tool for recognizing, evaluating, and controlling hazards. Important definitions and notes are shown in the margins. Practices that will help keep you safe and free of injury are emphasized. To give you an idea of the hazards caused by electricity, case studies about real-life deaths will be described."--NIOSHTIC-2

Protecting emergency responders, volume 2 : community views of safety and health risks and personal protection needs( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical service responders play a critical role in protecting people and property in the event of fires, natural and man-made disasters, medical emergencies, terrorist and other criminal acts, and numerous other types of emergencies. The authors examine the hazards that emergency responders face and the personal protective technology needed to contend with those hazards. The findings are based on in-depth discussions with 190 members of the emergency responder community nationwide, including structural firefighters, emergency medical service responders, police officers, emergency management officials, technology and services suppliers, researchers, and program managers from 83 organizations. The discussions focused on the primary tasks that emergency responders undertake; situations in which the risk of injury is greatest and, therefore, have the highest priority for improved personal protection; current and emerging technologies that are critical to protecting the health and safety of emergency responders; and the drivers of, impediments to, and gaps in personal protection technology development. The findings are intended to help define the protective technology needs of emergency responders and develop a comprehensive personal protective technology research agenda for the nation

"Since the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed, NIOSH has worked diligently and thoughtfully to protect the U.S. working population. NIOSH has relied heavily on science to guide its use of public resources, fulfill its responsibilities as outlined by Congress, and address critical occupational safety and health concerns. Over the years, policymakers, industry leaders, and organized labor have supported NIOSH's mission and have agreed that scientific research is essential for effectively protecting workers. We are proud that our research and recommendations are reflected in the pionering national initiatives that have reduced occupational exposure to hazards such as asbestos, lead, vinyl chloride, and other industrial agents and have led to safer and healthier workplaces. As the U.S. economy moved from its predominantly manufacturing base towards a more service-providing economy in the 1980s and 1990s, NIOSH kept pace with its research to address issues such as indoor air quality, latex allergy, musculoskeletal disorders, and workplace violence. Around this same time, NIOSH also became keenly aware of the need to expand its partnerships, leverage its resources, and more effectively demonstrate the value of its research. Today, our programs continue to evolve to meet the complex challenges that we face in the 21st century, including changing workforce dynamics, new demands, and emerging occupational safety and health issues. Through the creation of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) we have expanded our diverse partnerships and leveraged resources. Every day, we strive to achieve our mission with the determination, commitment to sound science, spirit of partnership, knack for innovation, and unique understanding of the workplace that has served us and our stakeholders well for the past four decades. This document presents qualities that underpin our efforts and illustrates ways in which we continue to drive progress in occupational safety and health. We have included our efforts in such areas as NORA, research-to-practice, emergency response, partnership, nanotechnology, global collaborations, and other cross-cutting programs. Throughout the document we have included specific examples of how NIOSH research has successfully impacted workplaces and the working population. As the U.S. looks to the strategies that will maintain American leadership in tomorrow's global market, it is critical to keep in mind that prevention of work-related injury, illness, and death is an integral part of those strategies. Keeping workers safe and healthy contributes to the efficiency, competitiveness, quality of service, and profitability of businesses. I hope you find this document informative and that it stimulates new ideas for ways in which we might collaborate to protect the U.S. workforce and keep our families, our communities, and our nation strong."--NIOSHTIC-2
