    Environmental Health and Hazard Risk Assessment: Principles and Calculations explains how to evaluate and apply environmental health and hazard risk assessment calculations in a variety of real-life settings. Using a wealth of examples and case studies, the book helps readers develop both a theoretical understanding and a working knowledge of the principles of health, safety, and accident management.


    Learn the Fundamentals of Health, Safety, and Accident Management


    The book takes a pragmatic approach to risk assessment, identifying problems and outlining solutions. Organized into four parts, the text:




    Presents an overview of the history of environmental health and hazard problems, legal considerations, and emergency planning and response
    Tackles the broad subject of health risk assessment, discussing toxicology, exposure, and health risk characterization
    Examines hazard risk assessment in significant detail-from problem identification, probability, consequence, and characterization of hazards/accidents to the fundamentals of applicable statistics theory
    Uses case studies to demonstrate the applications and calculations of risk analysis for real systems


    Incorporate Health and Safety in Process Design


    The book assumes only a basic background in physics, chemistry, and mathematics, making it suitable for students and those new to the field. It is also a valuable reference for practicing engineers, scientists, technicians, technical managers, and others tasked with ensuring that plant and equipment operations meet applicable standards and regulations. A clear and comprehensive resource, this book offers guidance for those who want to reduce or eliminate the environmental health effects and accidents that can result in loss of life, materials, and property.
