ASSE Releases Math Book for Safety Professionals
March 19, 2010

The American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) new book, Applied Mathematics for Safety Professionals: Tips, Tools and Techniques to Solve Everyday Problems is described as a reference book safety professionals can turn to for time-saving solutions to complex problems.

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.

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; 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.

For more information and to order the book please go to www.asse.org.
