View: 5900In most schools you will probably see one, if not all of the following: Metal detectors to prevent handguns and other weapons from being brought onto school property Students in standardized uniforms to prevent the appearance of gang affiliations Police officers patrolling the property to deter violent activity as well as respond to incidents Such evolutions have forever changed how we view the safety of our students. However, the phrase "school safety" goes beyond these issues of security put in place to protect students, faculty, and staff. Environmental factors also play a role. The Comprehensive Handbook of School Safety expands the dialogue on school safety to comprehensively address the spectrum of safety risks such as bullying, fire safety, playground and transportation safety, and more. Based on research and practical experience, it helps school administrators develop appropriate programs that protect all individuals from harm. Author E. Scott Dunlap brings his experience in OSHA and DOT compliance, behavior-based safety, and organizational safety culture to bear on the issue of school safety. He presents school safety from a holistic perspective and details vulnerability assessment tools and incident investigation forms to help schools develop a comprehensive safety program. By focusing on this range of issues, the book’s dynamic perspective puts the keys to achieving an effective safety program within easy reach.

View: 4505"Vor ungefahr zwei Jahren trat die Firma Urban & Schwarzenberg mit dem Vorschlage an mich heran, eine Enzyklopadie der technischen Chemie herauszugeben, die ungefahr 10 Bande umfassen und im Verlaufe von 3 - 4 Jahren erscheinen sollte. So wurde denn in fast 2jahriger angestrengter Vorarbeit der Grundplan fur das gesamte Werk entworfen und die Anordnung sowie der Umfang der einzelnen aufzunehmenden Artikel festgestellt. Den Gegenstand des auf breitester Basis angelegten Werkes bilden nicht nur die chemische Grossindustrie und die Metallhuttenkunde mit ihren maschinellen und apparativen Hilfsmitteln, sondern auch die zahlreichen Grenzgebiete, welche sich mit der stofflichen Veranderung oder der Veredelung der Materie uberhaupt befassen. Dem enzyklopadischen Charakter des Werkes entsprechend, musste die Anordnung des Stoffes alphabetisch sein. Doch schien es im Interesse der Ubersichtlichkeit und zur Vermeidung von Wiederholungen zweckmassig, Gebiete, welche stofflich eng zusammen gehoren, auch ausserlich aneinander zu schliessen. Um die Benutzung des Werkes in jeder nur denkbaren Weise zu erleichtern, dienen zur schnelleren Auffindung einer Substanz ausser den zahlreichen Hinweisen die jedem Bande beigegebenen sehr ausfuhrlichen Sachregister; den Schluss soll ein Generalregister bilden, welches die ganze Enzyklopadie umfassen wird. Fur die Rechtschreibung gilt durchweg die wissenschaftliche Schreibweise nach Jansen." [...] Der hier vorliegende achte Band der "Enzyklopadie der technischen Chemie" erlautert von "Natriumverbindungen" bis "Salophen" und ist mit uber 250 historischen Abbildungen illustriert. Dieses Buch ist ein unveranderter Nachdruck der Originalausgabe der zweiten neu bearbeiteten Auflage von 1931."
