Residential Exposure Assessment: A Source Book is the result of a multiyear effort known as the Residential Exposure Assessment Project (REAP) which was initiated by the Society for Risk Analysis and the International Society of Exposure Analysis. This textbook is the primary product of the REAP and it contains contributions from over 30 professionals from a variety of disciplines such as chemistry, biology, physics, engiÂ neering, industrial hygiene, toxicology, pharmacology, and environmental law, reflecting the diverse knowledge and resources necessary to assess and manage potential exposures occurring in and around the home. Expert working groups were organized for each of the 13 chapters to address such issues as U. S. legislation relevant to products used in and around the residence, methods for measuring and modeling exposures across multiple pathways and routes, and distributional data available for key residential exposure factors. This volume is a compendium of information about predictive methods and tools, monitoring methods, data sources, and key variables that characterize exposures in the residential setting. It presents approaches for doing exposure assessments in and around all types of residences. The purpose of the Source Book is to provide a resource for use in educational programs and for "practitioners" of residential exposure assessment. Accordingly, this book is intended for risk assessors, exposure assessors, students, initiÂ ates new to the concept of risk assessment, industrial hygienists assessing health hazards in the home, engineers, and monitoring specialists.
Ultrasonic Exposimetry presents the fundamentals of ultrasonics and discusses the theoretical background of acoustic wave generation and reception. Measurements, instrumentation, and interpretation of measured data (including error analysis) are examined in detail.
This is an excellent book which sheds light on one of the business world's darkest, and best kept secrets around. Targeted Exposed is a true story about a man who's life and career became ruined by a very aggressive workplace bully. This book documents what a horrific and destructive bully, who first acted as Bob's best friend and then suddenly turned on him in the office where he worked. Out of no fault of Bob, the bully began his reign of terror in the workplace back in 2005. He continued with his bullying tactics up to his last job in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, which had abruptly ended in January 2013. This bully actually kept tabs on Bob, following him as he worked around the country, doing his bullying harassment techniques in several job locations, where Bob found work. This is the behavior of a very sick man. That's why Bob calls him a "pathological serial work place bully".Since his Pittsburgh experience, Bob had decided to go on an anti-bully crusade to help others who are currently being bullied in the work place. Bullying is horrible, especially as an adult in the work place. No one talks about it or even admit that bullying even exists, but it does. And those who are victimized by this behavior are all good employees who end up either finding work else where, or being terminated. The business world needs to put "STOP BULLYING" as one of their main slogans for their workplace. Bullying ruins lives and in some cases, even kills. So wake up corporate world and realize what you are allowing is wrong.Bob's book also gives the reader many suggestions to help those who are being bullied in school as well as in the workplace. He also discusses as to what all the witnesses should do to help put a swift end to such harassment.Workplace bullying devastates the lives, careers, and families of millions. In this completely updated new edition, Bob added back in the names and locations of the companies where the bullying actually took place. The names have been changed to protect both the innocent and the guilty. Bob's anti-bully campaign is continuing to grow where he focuses on giving advice and support to other's targeted with Workplace Bullying. He also works with other anti-bullying organizations, which help our children who are being bullied in our schools. "This is a must read. I am the Director of Imbullyfree.org and we hear about this type of bullying at work all the time. Bullying does not stop after you finish school. The bully grows into an adult and continues bullying the rest of their life. Bob is a great advocate for children and adult rights when dealing with bullying. This book will help families understand the negative effects of bullying. Thanks Bob for a great book brother." Bud Collier - Director, Imbullyfree.org"The author shared his book with me. When I read it, I realized Bob had put his heart and soul into the book. It's an easy read and a true story, which has a power of its own. In detail, not sparing himself, Bob wrote the story of how he'd been bullied. His story will resonate with and comfort other targets. At the end, Bob identifies a variety of tools and tactics those targeted can try. This is the briefest section of the book, as the book's focus is Bob's real life story of workplace bullying. I'm glad I've met Bob and believe my own text, Beating the Workplace Bully, comes as a great second step to those facing a similar challenge." Lynne Curry"Richardson's story is a very disturbing revelation about what can go on in the workplace (as well as at school). Bullying can have a profound affect on the victims - there have even been teen and pre-teen suicides over online bullying. He describes his experiences clearly and in detail, and ends the book with several steps victims can take. A must-read for anyone who feels they may be experiencing bullying." - Wilbur H Highleyman
