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.

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

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 87 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
Protecting emergency responders( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph serves as a technical source for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) incident commander guidelines for emergency response immediately following large structural collapse events. It characterizes response activities and expected hazards, and develops guidelines for selecting appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). The partial or complete collapse of a multistory building creates an array of physical, chemical, and biological hazards. The most significant uncertainties are the composition and magnitude of the hazards present in the postcollapse environment. Although hazard monitoring can reduce these uncertainties, this type of monitoring will not be available during the first few postcollapse hours. The guidelines focus on three issues that present unique challenges in the response to a multistory-building collapse: (1) protection from biological hazards; (2) protection from inhalation of hazardous materials; and (3) required modifications to responders' typical PPE ensembles because of the duration and intensity of the response. However, selecting and purchasing appropriate PPE does not alone ensure safety; the guidelines also address the need to provide adequate supply of equipment and training so that it is used correctly
