Delmar and DEWALT® Focus on Construction Safety and OSHA Regulations with Newest Addition to the Professional Reference Series

Clifton Park, NY – June 18, 2012 – Delmar, part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, and DEWALT® announced today the release of the DEWALT® Construction Safety and OSHA Handbook. As the most recent addition to the DEWALT Professional Reference series, this new title covers topics on general safety management and current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements.

The DEWALT® Construction Safety & OSHA Handbook takes important safety topics and OSHA regulations and breaks down the complex language into an organized handbook of simple, straight-forward text. This new book provides comprehensive coverage on the requirements, standards and safe work practices that should be adhered to on jobsites.  It offers guidance for creating a jobsite safety program, and includes numerous forms, checklists and examples. The DEWALT® Construction Safety & OSHA Handbook also provides straightforward explanations of how to comply with OSHA recordkeeping requirements and detailed instructions that explain the process of an OSHA inspection, among other topics.

“We think that workers will be pleased with this new addition to the Delmar and DEWALT® Professional Reference series,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, Delmar. “Many competing books on jobsite safety management and OSHA requirements simply replicate complex OSHA language and offer little explanatory information surrounding the core concepts. With the DEWALT® Construction Safety and OSHA Handbook, which was created specifically for professionals rather than classroom use, workers can focus on OSHA-compliant practices and prepare themselves for real-world situations without being bogged down by complicated regulatory language. The book’s step-by-step approach uses many illustrations and diagrams to depict critical concepts and techniques for maximum comprehension of the material presented.”

The DEWALT® Construction Safety & OSHA Handbook is an addition to the Delmar and DEWALT® Professional Reference series, which presents a series of products covering broad topical appeal, retail-friendly manufacturing specifications and content presentation geared specifically for professionals.
