The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently announced the release of its new book titled Hazard Recognition and Control in Institutional Settings’ Guide for Hospitals, Universities and Nursing Homes, coauthored by George Byrns, Ph.D., MPH, CIH, and other health and safety professionals with extensive institutional safety experience.

The book provides vital information in a broad range of areas of concern to institutional health and safety (IEHS) professionals employed in hospitals, universities, and nursing homes, including: laws and regulations regarding environmental management; emergency preparedness and incident command systems; building renovation and design; waste management; hazard and risk assessment; indoor air quality and HVAC systems; health surveys and surveillance; social marketing; workplace violence; and workers’ compensation.

Areas of specific concern to hospital employees covered in this book include: healthcare accreditation standards, healthcare-specific occupational hazards, infection control, epidemiology and ergonomic issues. For nursing home employees, areas such as infection control and ergonomics, especially moving patients, are examined. For those in university and colleges settings, it addresses the possible hazards in dormitories, cafeteria and food services, student health services, science laboratories, and also art studios, theaters and agricultural settings.
