Preface : 
Since the second edition of this book, some things have not changed and others have. The need for safety professionals to understand basic fundamentals is essential in hazard recognition, evaluation, control measures, and the standards to ensure compliance with current required fire codes. The safety manager today faces a moral and legal responsibility to the community, worksite, and to the public. Safety managers need an understanding of the duties and responsibilities for which they are account able. The primary purpose of the Fire Safety Management Handbook is to integrate a broad field, including the National Fire Codes (NFPA), into a single manuscript that deals with all aspects of the fire sciences.This text presents the key elements that comprise an effective fire safety management program. It was written for fire safety professionals, safety managers, scientists, and college instructors as a useful reference in dealing with the varied problems of flammable hazardous materials as well as managers who are accountable for fire safety as part of a comprehensive safety and/or a risk management program. Safety programs are typically evaluated based upon the results they achieve for their respective organizations. Tangible results of any safety program can be difficult to measure. Over the years, the profession has evaluated safety program effectiveness by measuring the failures produced, such as accident frequency and severity rates, or property loss rates. Measuring safety programs by their failures is counterproductive. By the time any safety program produces the failures to measure, it is  too late for managers to implement activities that could have prevented those failures from occurring in the first place.
