Book Published by Montana Tech Professor Roger Jensen


4/10/2012

Montana Tech Professor Roger Jensen proudly announces publication of his book entitled Risk-Reduction Methods for Occupational Safety and Health. Published by Wiley Press, the book contains substantial coverage of systematic methods for identifying and managing workplace hazards. Dr. Jensen proposes two innovative taxonomies consisting of seven categories of occupational hazards and nine types of risk-reduction strategies. These taxonomies provide the basis for hazard-specific chapters containing extensive examples of how the risk-reduction strategies apply to particular hazards. Unlike prior books that rely heavily on regulations, codes, and standards, this book completely avoids such references by emphasizing science-based explanations.
