Toxicology Principles for the Industrial Hygienist; edited by William E. Luttrell, Warren W. Jederberg, and Kenneth R. Still (Stock No: BTOR08-738); introductory AIHA member price: $98, non-member price: $123.
This new toxicology reference examines basic principles and provides case studies that relate to the working environment. It also includes basic toxicological knowledge every industrial hygienist should know, especially in preparation for the certified industrial hygienist examination.
Its 36 chapters provide thorough discussions of understanding toxicology, sites of action of chemicals found in the workplace, chemical group toxicology, and sources and application of toxicological information.
Incident Safety and Health Management Handbook; authors: Joselito S. Ignacio and Incident Preparedness and Response Working Group (Stock No: SEPH08-744); introductory AIHA member price: $60, non-member Price: $85.
Compact and easy to use, this field guide and training tool provides key safety and health planning and execution steps to follow during various disaster response operations.
