Review quote

"Excellent book. Well written and easy to understand. This book should be mandatory reading material for anyone in the wastewater treatment business." -Jennifer Rodriquez, Safety Administrator "This manual is a very practical handbook for water treatment plant managers, engineers, operators and safety practitioners. Topics concerning safety programmes, training requirements, documentation, auditing, safety equipment and safe work practices are presented clearly in a text that is easy to understand... This work is a very interesting and useful manual for operators, engineers and fieldworkers, and not only in the field of water treatment plants, but also for other purposes. It could be used as a standard handbook for all information concerning safety problems related to any type of industrial activity, with the exception of handling radioactive material." - International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 15, No. 6, 2001show more
