Handbook of Loss Prevention Engineering
Loss prevention engineering describes the engineering activities intended to help organizations in any industry to prevent loss, whether it be through injury, fire, explosion, toxic release, natural disaster, terrorism or other security threats. Compared to engineering for process safety, which only focusses on preventing loss in the process industry, this is a much broader field.
Here is the only one-stop source for loss prevention principles, policies, practices, programs and methodology presented from an engineering vantage point. As such, this two-volume handbook discusses the engineering needs for manufacturing, construction, process industries, defense, health care, transportation and communications, covering the topics to a depth that allows for their functional use while providing additional references should more information be required. The reference nature of the book allows any engineers or other professionals in charge of loss prevention and safety concerns to find the information needed to complete their analysis, project, process, or design.
