In an interview, Joel Haight, editor-in-chief of ASSE's The Safety Professionals Handbook, talked about an insider's perspective on how the book came together and what it will mean to the SH&E profession. All of ASSE's 13 practice specialties were solicited for interested and qualified authors. Much of what is published in the safety and health area is written by individual authors, so it represents the results of their work and experience. For information to be included, it had to have been published or been proven by long-term, widely accepted or industrywide practice. To ensure that this expectation was upheld, they enforced a rigorous peer review process in which each chapter was evaluated by three reviewers, one of whom the author could select. Coupled with the insight and creativity of the authors, this has resulted in a book that will provide readers with the tools they need to learn the field and to continue its effective practice all the way to retirement.
