This volume has been prepared for the Environmental and Health & Safety Manager. The EH&S Manager is a new breed of corporate professionals that are faced with the responsibility of handling both environmental policy/issues and occupational safety issues within organizations. Throughout the 1980s there was a proliferation of health and safety departments, environmental compliance personnel, and technical people associated with handling pollution control and waste management. American industry has been over the last several years contracting and downsizing their operations. In doing so, many corporations, large and small, are demanding greater responsibilities be delegated to middle and line function management. In this regard, many corporations today are moving towards a single management entity, the EH&S Manager, who's responsibilities require extensive knowledge of both the environmental statutes and OSHA standards. This desk reference has been written as a compliance source for the EH&S Manager. The authors prefer to call the EH&S Manager an Occupational Safety Professional and use this designation interchangeably throughout the text. This individual, as stated above, has a dual responsibility that requires both technical and managerial skills in two arenas. In this regard, this book provides the working professional a reference on both the environmental regulations and industry safety standards. Additionally, it covers management practices for on-site hazard materials handling operations and constitutes an important reference for establishing hazard communication and training programs for employees.

Even though most organizations have extensive safety, health, and environmental protocols in place, things often go wrong. Having good quality instructions is only half the battle. An equally crucial part of a good quality process is auditing, the step that ensures compliance with the procedures. Safety, Health, and Environmental Auditing: A Practical Guide provides down to earth guidance on improving safety, health, and environmental performance, supplying a starting point for developing auditing protocols and knowing how to implement them. In contrast to the overly academic and uninspiring tone of many auditing books, this text gives accessible, user-friendly advice in a step-by-step manner. Based on novel auditing techniques designed to overcome common problems in the audit process, the book emphasizes accurate auditing that is representative and repeatable. It has been written in such a way that it is easy to dip into and out of the short chapters to refresh your memory prior to or during an audit. Alleviating the need to trawl through mountains of text to find useful and practical checklists, the author provides a set of audit protocols covering 60 different aspects of environmental, health, and safety management in Appendix 2 and frequently used, practical administrative checklists useful for planning and conducting the audit in Appendix 1. The book integrates the concepts of safety, health, and environmental auditing into a common approach of loss prevention. Based on the author’s 16 years of developing and teaching EHS auditing techniques, it conveys the practical tricks of the trade in an interesting and memorable way. Not only does the book advise on the human factor elements of successful auditing, but it also provides a detailed methodology, both on paper and in simple-to-use software, that shows organizations how to conduct their own audits in an effective manner.
