TLVs and BEIs: Threshold Limit Values for Chemical Substances and Physical Agents and Biological Exposure Indices
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.
The most comprehensive texts available on the current practice of industrial hygiene. Dr. Perkins has done an excellent job of editing the text so that there is minimal or no duplication between the chapters by the various authors. The contributors and reviewers did a fantastic job of presenting the material in a clear and precise manner. The texts present technical information important to the practicing industrial hygienist in a straight forward manner.
A spiral bound book describing every equation on the previous exam formula sheet handout. Written by faculty at the Harvard School of Public Health. A quick reference to review specific formulas.
This is considered to be the original "White Book." It was originally published by NIOSH and has been updated twice by the AIHA.
I call this the "Little White Book." It is a short list of facts and information on each industrial hygiene subject. It is great for reviewing information, but it won't help much if you haven't studied the material in another text.
The basic reference for ventilation. Recommend reading the first five chapters. You can pass the exam without owning this manual, but you will probably want a copy if you stay in the field for any length of time.
The basic text for noise and hearing protection. A good investment for your IH library, but not absolutely necessary for the exam.
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.
