How dangerous is someone's job? People from ages 22 through 64 spend roughly 40% of their non-sleeping time at a job where there is considerable potential for exposure to fatal safety and health risks. The purpose of this book is to improve the knowledge and working environment of American workers, by providing an in-depth look at the job hazards in 324 industries and 265 occupations. Human Resource managers, industry trade organizations, corporate CEOs, health care administrators, secondary school counselors, as well as, scholars and upper level college and graduate students in the areas of Human Resources, Management, Health Care Management, Law and Social Environment will find this work extremely useful.
