The previous edition of the International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors made history as the first unified source of reliable information drawn from many realms of science and technology and created specifically with ergonomics professionals in mind. It was also a winner of the Best Reference Award 2002 from the Engineering Libraries Division, American Society of Engineering Education, USA, and the Outstanding Academic Title 2002 from Choice Magazine. Not content to rest on his laurels, human factors and ergonomics expert Professor Waldemar Karwowski has overhauled his standard-setting resource, incorporating coverage of tried and true methods, fundamental principles, and major paradigm shifts in philosophy, thought, and design. Demonstrating the truly interdisciplinary nature of this field, these changes make the second edition even more comprehensive, more informative, more, in a word, encyclopedic. Keeping the format popularized by the first edition, the new edition has been completely revised and updated. Divided into 13 sections and organized alphabetically within each section, the entries provide a clear and simple outline of the topics as well as precise and practical information. The book reviews applications, tools, and innovative concepts related to ergonomic research. Technical terms are defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary. Students and professionals will find this format invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing, or psychology backgrounds. Experts and researchers will also find it an excellent source of information on areas beyond the range of their direct interests.

Slips and Falls: A new Approach to Friction Measurements is an explanation of the physics topic of friction and its relation to slips and falls. As well as slipping phenomena, other important and relevant friction related concepts and applications are presented to clearly guide you through this complex topic. This book explains the use of equipment such as tribometers in measuring friction in falls and their level of accuracy. It explains other measuring techniques used and assumptions that come up when working with friction in fall cases, and shows which ones are erroneous and which are valid. It also discusses other aspects that apply to the physics of friction in slip and fall accidents. It gives you a back-to-basics understanding of the physics of falls. It is an essential book and a call to action for any professional currently involved in the investigation, research and litigation of slip and fall incidents.

"The consequences of slips, trips, and missteps can range from losses of balance to severe injuries with costly, disabling, life-altering, or fatal outcomes. The third edition of this book is a comprehensive reference for all aspects of ambulation slips, trips, missteps, and falls. The authors have provided the material as a useful reference to assist in understanding how ambulating people slip, trip, misstep, and fall and a guide for implementing preventive or mitigating controls to reduce the likelihood of these incidents occurring. This third edition includes updated scientific literature bases, standards, codes, and guidelines; entirely new chapters on distracted walking and drug-induced falls; and ordering of chapters for more useful information flow. The previous versions are Falls and Related Injuries: Slips, Trips, Missteps and Their Consequences published in 2002 and Slips, Trips, Missteps, and Their Consequences (Second Edition) published in 2007. The first chapter provides an overview of the role of the human in the ambulation process and covers human factors and ergonomics principles. Chapters 2 through 8 address why people slip, trip, misstep, and fall; the different types of falls; the fall-inducing hazards; and other human components of the ambulation system. Chapters 9 through 11 discuss the effects of distractions, aging, and pharmacology on ambulation and falls. Chapters 12 through 22 apply human factors/ergonomics, biomechanical, and cognitive principles to ambulation environments. Also discussed are the standards of care to eliminate or control hazard exposure as well as to mitigate the severity of predictable or expected hazard exposure consequences. Chapter 23 addresses the role and value of an expert witness in the preparation of an ambulation fall related case. Chapter 24 is a fall prevention manual that contains checklists for inspecting and identifying premise ambulation hazards. Chapter 25 includes a list of codes and standards applicable to ambulation falls at publication time of this book. Gary M. Bakken, Cindy A. LaRue, and H. Harvey Cohen collaborated to author Chapters 1-10 and 12-25. Chapter 11 was co-authored by James J. O'Donnell III and James T. O'Donnell"--

Published more than ten years ago, the first edition of Accident/Incident Prevention Techniques provided clear, comprehensive guidance on how to mitigate the cost, in personnel and to the bottom line, of accidents/incidents in the workplace. Significantly revised and updated, this Second Edition takes its place as the A to Z hands-on guide to the responsibilities, principles, tools, and techniques involved in accident investigative planning and preparation. Written by safety expert Charles D. Reese, the book details tried and true techniques that have been used by the occupational safety and health community for many years. It also presents the best theoretical methods to help those responsible for occupational safety develop the best prevention initiative for them and their workforce. Based on the premise that all businesses and industries must face the reality that occupational accidents and illnesses will transpire and the results of these events will have a negative impact on the company’s bottom line, the book provides practical examples, easy-to-implement processes, numerous illustrations, and usable forms throughout. See What’s New in the Second Edition Topics such as safety culture and behavior-based safety Expanded coverage of some topics such as analysis tools and accident investigation Updated statistical data, sources, and contacts Updated changes in regulations and compliance Relevance with current trends and issues in accident prevention By investigating the various methods and equipment used in system safety applications, the book covers a myriad of accident/incident prevention techniques and supplies the illustrations and tools that allow readers to begin to develop and build a safety and health program in their workplace. The author draws on his more than 30 years of experience to supply a template for the development of an effective safety and health program.
