The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met.
Covers a wide range of industries including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants.
Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions.
