The 2nd edition provides the reader with everything he or she needs to meet those requirements for both health safety officers (HSOs) and incident safety officers (ISOs).
The manual is divided according to discipline: Chapters 1-12 are for HSOs, Chapters 13-16 for ISOs. Chapters 2-16 all include learning activities designed to guide the reader through a practice exercise covering that chapter’s content. Each chapter also opens with a case history that illustrates a real world example of that chapter’s information in application. Finally, most chapters include end notes that guide the reader toward research that was used to develop portions of each chapter.
