Scientific monographs released
We are pleased and proud to announce that a long-awaited series of scientific monographs entitled “Occupational Safety, Health, and Ergonomics: Theory and Practice” has been recently released on the international market. The monographs were published in CRC Press / Taylor & Francis by the Central Institute for Labour Protection – National Research Institute in cooperation with scientists from other leading research institutions. Individual volumes of the series are available on the publisher’s website, both in paper version and as an e-book:
Multiple copies may also be ordered. For information, please contact the publisher at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Content of the 14 monographs
The series consists of 14 monographs reviewing state-of-the-art knowledge and practical solutions applicable in the widely understood work environment. The authors present various topics, such as chemical and biological hazards in the workplace and discuss different types of personal protective equipment, including respiratory protection against harmful biological agents. They analyse the impact of noise on employees, and the effect of lighting on their well-being. Finally, they explore the welfare of employees with health problems or those involved in emotionally demanding professions, such as medical professions. They also present how to use virtual reality to provide safe working conditions for workers, as well as the latest methods of occupational health and safety management in institutions.
So far, the following titles have been published in the series:
- Individual and Occupational Determinants: Work Ability in People with Health Problems
- Healthy Worker and Healthy Organization: A Resource-Based Approach
- Emotional Labor in Work with Patients and Clients: Effects and Recommendations for Recovery
- New Opportunities and Challenges in Occupational Safety and Health Management
- Emerging Chemical Risks in the Work Environment
- Visual and Non-Visual Effects of Light: Working Environment and Well-Being
- Occupational Noise and Workplace Acoustics: Advances in Measurement and Assessment Techniques
- Virtual Reality and Virtual Environments: A Tool for Improving Occupational Safety and Health
- Head, Eye, and Face Personal Protective Equipment: New Trends, Practice and Applications
- Nanoaerosols, Air Filtering and Respiratory Protection: Science and Practice
- Microbial Corrosion of Buildings: A Guide to Detection, Health Hazards, and Mitigation
- Respiratory Protection Against Hazardous Biological Agents
The following titles will soon be added to the series:
- Active Noise Control: Systems, Solutions and Applications
- Electromagnetic Ergonomics: From Electrification to a Wireless Society.
We hope you will appreciate and favour this series of publications, summarizing many years of research conducted by the Central Institute for Labour Protection – National Research Institute as well as long-term and fruitful cooperation with institutions in Poland and abroad.
