Essays on Safety, Health, and Environment is a group of studies by Fred Fanning. The book is the result of Fanning's twenty-year experience in the Safety, Health, and Environment (SHE) profession and offers tribute to the centennial remembrance of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York City. The author provides an overview of the job description and responsibilities of SHE workers and OSHA and discusses worrisome plants and dangerous animals that may complicate outdoor working conditions. Fanning covers the measures safety professionals have tried to take, or may take, to reduce workplace accidents and illnesses, and an informative forum he attended on climate change. The text reviews disasters in mines and on rockets, urging better practices in the future to prevent tragedies.
In addition to his training and experience, Fred Fanning was a Certified Safety Professional for a decade, and he is well aware of work- and home-related hazards. The book's content touches on proper planning and preparedness for many weather-related and hazardous conditions and provides tools for managing a project to better equip a SHE professional. I was glad to learn some interesting procedures and facts, like the series of steps that pointed to the cause of certain mining incidents, the ratings for driving conditions and the colors used to describe each one, and the meaning of Trench Foot. Anyone who is interested in a safety, health, or environmental position would benefit from reading Essays on Safety, Health, and Environment, and even seasoned professionals will gain insights from the useful information in this book!
