A great text on radiation. Good reference book for your library, but probably not the best investment in studying for the exam.
A great book describing health hazards in a variety of industries. Describes many of the industries where IH really got a strong start. Many of us no longer work in these industries, but there are still questions on the exam based on prevalent exposures in specific businesses. Recommend reading chapters on welding, abrasive blasting, and surface coatings.
This is the first real safety management book that I've read. It is well written, and it is definitely worth reading if you are a safety professional or industrial hygienist. Many of the management theories are discussed in the text. This is an excellent book.
This is another excellent resource for the ASP® and CSP® exams.
This is considered to be the original "White Book." It was originally published by NIOSH and has been updated twice by the AIHA.
A must have. Excellent source of information regarding the CIH exam. Recommend reading it cover to cover. Don't try to memorize TLVs, but you should understand the basis for TLVs. It also provides information on many IH subjects.
This book provides an in-depth review of toxicology. It is an excellent source of information on a difficult subject for the exam.
Learn the purpose and how to calculate the ventilation equations shown on the CIH exam equation sheet. Dr. Daniel Farcas, CIH, CSP, CHMM, visually explains the use of the ventilation equations found in his book “CIH EXAM Equations simply explained and with examples.”
