A Review Of AAS Manufacturing And Safety Science
Since 1982, Aerosol Technology was the first text of choice by many students and professional alike who wish to obtain a deep understanding of industrial safety and aerosol technology. This pioneering text has been used as the foundation for countless industrial and medical research projects, resulting in improved safety standards and the prevention of countless air disasters. This concise work encompasses the essential lessons of industrial and healthcare science, thereby providing a sound baseline in the study of safety. The authors have done an excellent job of synthesizing the past, present, and future of safety, making this textbook a must for all interested persons.
This book not only provides the most comprehensive account of industrial and healthcare science and their relation to occupational health and safety, but it also addresses important topics such as personal protective equipment, biohazardology, and the reactive potential of aerosols. It is rare to find an introductory text that provides so much information on so many different topics and focuses so tightly on so many different aspects of occupational health and safety. This is one of the primary reasons for its popularity. The authors have done an excellent job of synthesizing the past, present, and future of industrial and healthcare safety. They provide practical, clear, and concise guidance that makes implementing regulations and implementing safety programs easy and effective.
Part one of the book covers the historical development of aerosol technology, the types of substances used, and their hazards. Authors Joseph Price and John Chadwick describe the history of sulfuric acid aerosol products, discussing sulfuric acid, its production, and use. They also describe the invention of the hydrolysis process and discuss the first safety products based on hydrolysis. They conclude their discussion of safety with a description of electrochemical safety methods and their uses, as well as their importance to the electrochemical process.
Part two of the book reviews the historical development of biological aerosol products and their hazards, including biological aerosol dispersal, biological hazard design, and storage of biological safety data. Authors John Chadwick and Joseph Price review some of the most popular and commonly used biological safety data. They examine the relationship between personnel safety and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). They conclude that PPE should be employed whenever possible. They also discuss the use and maintenance of certain respiratory protective equipment, and how those materials are maintained and should be maintained in the appropriate environments.
Part three of the book reviews current trends in the use of aerosol technology. Authors John Chadwick and Joseph Price describe these trends and their importance to current regulatory issues and strategies. They also discuss recent developments in the use of non-aerosol materials in the workplace safety arena.
The fourth chapter of the book reviews recent technological advances in the manufacture of non explosively powered aerosol products. John Chadwick and Joseph Price review recent product development and safety standards activities. They conclude that significant developments have occurred with regard to flammable propellants and other aspects of safety management in the workplace.
