This book bridges probabilistic risk assessment methodologies, including Monte Carlo and Bayesian, and practical application of these techniques to support food safety decision makers. Focused on a topic of increased international concern (for example, the 2008 e coli outbreak in US and Mexico lettuce), the book illustrates how methods are applied through chapter case studies on contamination in pathogen contamination in leafy greens, mercury contamination in fish, and risks of listeria. Its approach fits in with the 2008 National Research Council guidance on risk assessment.
This book focuses on food safety for food processors. First it explores rules and regulations imposed by government agencies, customers, and the processing plants themselves (including GMP, SSOP, HACCP, Food Security, and Pest Control programs). Next it analyzes the allergens and allergen programs used by food manufacturers. Last, but certainly not least, it examines the types of recalls and recall programs implemented by food processors when unsafe product reaches the public.
Written by specialists in the fields of food bioterrorism and industry preparedness, Bioterrorism and Food Safety focuses on developing rational and implementable food security strategies and plans. It integrates food safety issues, technological developments in traceability, and legal analysis of current and pending regulations with good business practices, and then relates these elements to the development of effective and workable food security programs for food businesses.
The text covers the biological and chemical risks associated with the intentional contamination of food and discusses underlying legal issues, regulatory compliance, and cost/benefit analysis. It also provides implementation strategies to reduce food security risks, discusses advances in traceability, and suggests ways to reduce the risk of intentional contamination and improve consumer confidence in the safety of the food supply.
With its clear presentation of current hazards, safety guidelines, and security measures, this comprehensive work introduces practicing professionals throughout the food industry and those charged with the responsibility of terrorism prevention to workable strategies that address address safety risks associated with all facets of food production, storage, and delivery.

This book focuses exclusively on ergonomics in the design and use of hand tools. Hand tools have been an integral supplement to the human hand since the beginning of civilization. Recently, they have been pinpointed as a prominent cause of workplace disease. Cumulative Trauma Disorders such as Tendonitus, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Raynaud's Syndrome are caused by the specialization of motion employed when using a screw driver, the shock to the hand and wrist when a hammer strikes a nail, or the vibration of a power saw. Ergonomics and Safety in Hand Tool Design explores the relationship between Biomechanics, Safety, and Ergonomics allowing the reader to recognize, evaluate, and control ergonomic risk factors and improve hand tool design.
