Fundamentally, fire prevention and control refer to systems and practices that increase a facility's ability to avoid fires, limit the development and spread of fires, and rapidly and effectively control fires. Changing safety codes and regulations along with recent technological advances have rendered the first edition of this popular handbook somewhat out of date and left fire safety professionals without a current, reliable reference devoted to their needs. Comprehensive, uniquely focused, and completely up to date, the Industrial Fire Protection Handbook, Second Edition provides a practical guide for improving fire prevention and protection within a work environment. The author has made extensive revisions, significantly expanded his discussions in key areas, and added numerous examples and illustrations to provide a better-than-ever overview of all essential areas of fire protection, including loss control programs, fire behavior, life safety, hazard control, and emergency planning. New in the Second Edition: Discussions of new extinguishing agents, including wet chemical and clean agents designed to replace halon Significantly expanded coverage of general loss control programs More in-depth treatment of hazard control and life safety issues Broader coverage of installed fire protection systems More examples covering selection, placement, and maintenance of fire extinguishers

Are you a practicing occupational hygienist wondering how to find a substitute organic solvent that is safer to use than the hazardous one your company is using? Chapter 6 is your resource. Are you a new hygienist looking for an alternative technology as a nonventilation substitute for an existing hazard? Chapter 8 is your resource. Are you looking for an overview of ventilation? Chapters 10 and 11 are your resource? Are you an industrial hygiene student wanting to learn about local exhaust ventilation? Chapters 13 through 16 are your resource. Are you needing to learn about personal protective equipment and respirators? Chapters 21 and 22 are your resources. This new edition brings all of these topics and more right up-to-date with new material in each chapter, including new governmental regulations. While many of the controls of airborne hazards have their origins in engineering, this author has been diligent in explaining concepts, writing equations in understandable terms, and covering the topics of non-ventilation controls, both local exhaust and general ventilation, and receiver controls at the level needed by most IHs without getting too advanced. Taken as a whole, this book provides a unique, comprehensive tool to learn the challenging yet rewarding role that industrial hygiene can play in controlling airborne chemical hazards at work. Most chapters contain a set of practice problems with the solutions available to instructors. Features Written for the novice industrial hygienist but useful to prepare for ABIH certification Explains engineering concepts but requires no prior engineering background Includes specific learning goals that differentiate the depth of learning appropriate to each topic within the fuller information and explanations provided for each chapter Contains updated governmental regulations and abundant references Presents a consistent teaching philosophy and approach throughout the book Deals with both ventilation and non-ventilation controls

NON-HALOGENATED FLAME RETARDANT HANDBOOK The 2nd edition of the definitive single book of information, regulations, and how to use non-halogenated flame retardant technology. This book focuses on non-halogenated flame retardants with an emphasis on practical and applied issues, and builds upon the 1st edition, but is not just a re-do/re-edit of 1st/sup edition content. While non-halogenated flame retardants have not greatly changed since the 1st edition was published in 2014, there have been enough advances and changes to merit a 2nd edition. The book includes chapters on regulation and drivers for non-halogenated flame retardants, specific chapters on each of the major classes of flame retardants, as well as some newer technologies/niche non-halogenated solutions which are either starting to enter the market (coatings / bio-derived flame retardants) or are at least being studied with enough detail to bring to the attention of the reader. As with the 1st edition, the 2nd edition still takes a practical approach to addressing the narrow subject of non-halogenated flame retardancy. It includes more emphasis on flame retardant selection for specific plastics, practical considerations in flame retardant material design, and what the strengths and limits of these various technologies are. Previous flame retardant material science books have covered non-halogenated flame retardants, but they focus more on how they work rather than how to use them. This book focuses more on the practical uses, hence the title of the book “Handbook”, which should make it of good use to industrial chemists and material scientists. Audience The primary audience is material scientists, industrial chemists, fire safety engineers who have to meet flame retardant needs to sell products. It will also be useful to academics working to develop new flame retardant solutions.

Safety managers today are required to go beyond compliance with the latest fire codes to implement proactive fire safety management programs that improve profitability. By reducing property loss insurance premiums and fostering an efficient work environment to help realize quality gains, safety managers can add to the bottom line; however, they need a solid understanding of the duties and responsibilities for which they are accountable. The Fire Safety Management Handbook is every safety manager’s must-have guide for developing a successful fire safety management program. Emphasizing proactive fire safety activities that achieve optimal results, the text presents the key elements that comprise an effective fire safety management program, including a basic knowledge of: Types and functions of fire control equipment Identification and control of hazardous materials Homeland security during disasters and emergencies Fire chemistry, building construction, and efforts to reduce losses due to fire Commonly installed fire detection systems and their maintenance and inspection National Fire Codes (NFPA) and federal, state, and local legislation and enforcement Available resources, fire safety organizations, and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) To provide current and future safety professionals with a better understanding of emergency management within the fire safety discipline, each chapter of the Third Edition includes learning objectives at the beginning and questions at the end. Case studies have been added, codes and standards have been updated, and a new chapter on emergency response planning has been included. Plus, a school fire safety plan that can be used as a template is now part of the appendices.
