Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of the only one-stop source for loss prevention principles, policies, practices, programs and methodology. The Handbook of Loss Prevention Engineering presents the engineering needs for manufacturing, construction, mining, defence, health care, transportation and quantification; covering the topics to a depth that allows for their functional use while providing additional references should more information be required. One of its major advantages is that The Handbook of Loss Prevention Engineering deals not only with engineering aspects but how these relate to the economics of loss prevention, corporate culture, leadership and business practice and project planning.

The reference nature of the Handbook of Loss Prevention Engineering allows engineers or other professionals in charge of safety concerns to find the information needed to complete their analysis, project, process, or design.

The 2 volume set cover the topics to a depth that will allow functional use while providing additional references in case more information in needed making it a must-have for every safety engineer and safety professional.
