AIHA Publishes New Edition of Toxicology Principles for the Industrial Hygienist
By Jeffrey A. Church
In August, AIHA published the second edition of Toxicology Principles for the Industrial Hygienist, a book sponsored by AIHA’s Toxicology Committee. The book has been comprehensively updated to incorporate current trends and global issues affecting toxicology principles. The second edition also includes new chapters on epidemiology and exposure reconstruction, and a new section devoted to particulate matter with chapters on nano- and ultrafine particles, PM1/PM2.5 particles, silica, asbestos, coal, synthetic mineral fibers, and diesel exhaust particulate matter.
Toxicology Principles for the Industrial Hygienist is intended as a resource for practicing industrial hygienists and for use as a classroom textbook. Many chapters include case studies to emphasize toxicological principles and their practical applications to the industrial hygiene professional. The latest edition of the book includes 45 chapters in six sections: understanding toxicology, sites of action of chemicals found in the workplace, chemical group toxicology, toxicology of particulate matter, application of toxicological information, and sources of toxicological information.
