- 2010 CRCnetBASEedited by Danuta Koradecka.Occupational safety and health--safe work in a safe environment. The challenge, of course, is how to make this happen and make it happen economically. A comprehensive study presenting the state of the art in the field, Handbook of Occupational Safety and Health provides a wide range of methods along with specific criteria for assessing hazards and exposures in the workplace environment. More importantly, it also offers ways to reduce these hazards. The book supplies a compendium of interdisciplinary knowledge that includes physical, chemical, and psychosocial risk factors in the work environment and also discusses issues concerning occupational safety and health management. The book discusses the ergonomic principles of shaping products, workstands, and work processes, highlighting the significance of international requirements for competitiveness in the world economy. It presents the scientific basis for each safety and health issue, followed by well-illustrated case studies to demonstrate the concepts and theories and their application in real-world situations. Based on the results of international research, the book covers. Developed by a team of renowned contributors, Handbook of Occupational Safety and Health includes strategies for creating safe working conditions, accurately assessing hazards posed by harmful environmental factors, and preventing occupational accidents and diseases. Meticulously designed to be user-friendly, it provides the tools to create a safety culture beginning at the enterprise level through to the individual employee. --Book Jacket.

- 2012 Springeredited by Thomas Rustemeyer, Peter Elsner, Swen-Malte John, Howard I. Maibach.Occupational skin diseases are a field of increasing interest in today's dermatology. Due to rapid developments in several areas of modern industry, new dermatological problems constantly occur amongst workers.The 1st edition of this Handbook of Occupational Dermatology was published in 2000 and has served as the main reference book of occupational skin diseases for general and occupational dermatologists and occupational physicians. The new edition is completely revised, updated and extended with respect to new developments. The layout allows for both quick access to practical information and in-depth reading. Included are concise tables, algorithms and figures on how to optimize the diagnostic procedure for daily patient management and expert opinion.The new edition will continue the success as major source of reference for clinical and experimental work in the field of occupational skin diseases, both for students and experts.

It discusses potentially work-related malignancies, in the context of exposure assessment, specific clinical and pathological features of occupational cancer and biomarkers of exposure and disease. Epidemiological data about risk ratios of the cancer in question are reviewed for various occupations and with exposure to specific carcinogens, carcinogenic mechanisms, host susceptibility factors (genetic and other) and other environmental and life-style risk factors. Aspects such as surveillance of workers exposed to carcinogens, and strategies for prevention of occupational cancer are also discussed. Occupational Cancers is aimed at oncologists, pathologists, residents in training, clinical researchers, clinicians in occupational health, epidemiologists, pulmonologists, lawyers and public health officials.

- 2014 SpringerLinda F. Hogle, editor.Regenerative medicine is at a pivotal point. Innovations in the science and the rapid growth of translational medicine are transforming the field just as institutional arrangements are changing, making this an exciting yet unsettled time. Recent court cases and policy initiatives are creating crosscurrents that keep older issues from being settled while introducing new dilemmas. Current research propels collaborations across disciplines and sectors, raising the question of how tensions between the protection of intellectual property and the movement toward "open science" can be negotiated. Other important social, ethical and legal questions arise in the gray areas created by new scientific techniques and pragmatic areas involved in scale-up and testing in humans. The times call for governance that is adaptive to meet the needs of science yet able to maintain public trust. The contributors address these and other vital questions through chapters focusing on topics such as data sharing; patenting of human biological material; and managing collaborations across academic, industry and government sectors as well as across national boundaries. Key research ethics issues are also included such as obtaining consent from biospecimen donors; accessing biorepository data, and considerations in designing preclinical and clinical trial protocols for first-in-human research, including upcoming policy changes. Rather than retracing well-trodden topics, the book points to nascent areas that need to be addressed. Whether working in academia, industry, or government, regenerative medicine scientists and managers need to know how to navigate current and upcoming issues of governance facing the field. Regenerative Medicine Ethics: Governing Research and Knowledge. Practices will be a valuable resource for scientists, policy-makers and students as they plan and execute responsible research.
