The Story of the World from Safetyman
About the Book
An early life tragedy and survivor’s guilt led Frank Burg toward life as a safetyman.
He’s devoted his life to accident prevention, investigation, and the development of safety standards to prevent pain, suffering, and economic catastrophe. In this book, he explores how to:
• prevent serious accidents with common sense;
• eliminate the root causes of hazards;
• learn what it takes to pursue a career in safety and health;
• recognize limitations and determine when you need an expert.
Burg draws on his experiences working for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, as a corporate safety director, teacher and trainer to share basic principles of safety and health. Whether you want to protect yourself, family, or business interests, you’ll find his guidance essential.
Simple tasks such as getting your mail, using a stool to change an energized lightbulb, or pulling leaves out of a gutter can put your life in jeopardy. Think twice before you act, recognize potential hazards, and solve problems with life-saving guidance from a safetyman.
