ASSE releases updated "Applied Mathematics for Safety Professional" book (3/16)
Some of the everyday problems and questions safety and health professionals are faced with include queries on circuit power light safety; what rigging is needed to safely lift a load; fugitive emissions from equipment possibly exceeding the PEL; hearing protection requirements for a job; an instrument possibly being excessively unreliable based on its calibration history; and, how many cool-down breaks should be provided to workers inside a hot vessel. This book not only addresses those questions, but is also aimed at helping college and university students prepare for a career in safety engineering by providing exposure to problems they will encounter and the mathematical tools and analysis techniques needed on the job.
This book explains the practical uses of important mathematical concepts in the many fields in which safety professionals work, including ergonomics, ventilation, noise abatement, radiation, thermal stress, hydrostatics and hydraulics, and engineering economy. Chapters on statistics and probability are also included, providing a broad base of equations in each area along with detailed answers to problems.
