Designed for use within courses based on the Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Occupational Safety and Health for Emergency Services model curriculum, Occupational Safety and Health in the Emergency Services, Fourth Edition provides a comprehensive overview of the many components of occupational safety and health for the emergency services. This textbook provides a historical look at industrial safety and health and how history has impacted the emergency services by providing a safer work environment that reduces first responder deaths and injuries.

  • Thorough coverage of the “16 Fire Fighter Life safety Initiatives” with emphasis on the positive impact these Initiatives can have when implemented. 
  • Case studies, review and discussion questions, and additional resources for each chapter.
