Consider this exactly what it is, me shamelessly plugging my text book. It will be out within the next few weeks and available through Amazon, but I wanted to share the cover with you (and no, I didn't write the blurb on the back). Despite the fact I am plugging it, I think it would be a great resource to newly appointed CHO's, Lab Safety Officers, dual/multi responsibility safety folks. Here is a link to the cover:
