... timely and very much needed. ... a comprehensive ... [book] covering all important aspects of the technology. --From the Foreword by Dr. Kauser Abdulla Malik, HI, SI, TI, Distinguished National Professor, Dean for Postgraduate Studies, Forman Christian College (A Chartered University), Lahore, Pakistan This book is certainly a very valuable guide for any safety manager intending to build and maintain an effective safety activity. The focus on human factors is on the most relevant aspects as much as the need to define the most valuable ways to perform a retrospective analysis of occurrences. The implementation of a Safety Management System is the essential instrument on which safety processes and company operations are based. The correct approach to dealing with human factors and in particular to analyzing the contribution pf human errors to incident causation is a crucial pillar, but not the only one, on which the entire foundation of organizational safety is based. This book offers a valuable support in ensuring this is achieved. --Cogn Tech Work, 2016


Author Information

Muhammad Sarwar Khan is a highly regarded molecular biologist who has made colossal contributions in the field of chloroplast genetic engineering, and is a pioneer in expressing oxygen-loving green fluorescent protein from jellyfish in chloroplasts-plant organelles with reduced environments. He also pioneered plastid transformation in rice and sugarcane, recalcitrant plant species. Dr. Khan has developed borer-resistant transgenic sugarcane plants with no toxin residues in the juice. Dr. Khan has supervised more than 100 students at the master's and PhD levels. His current research involves edible-marker-carrying transgenics, cost-effective therapeutics, edible vaccines, and plantomics. Dr. Khan is presently director of the Center of Agricultural Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan. Iqrar Ahmad Khan has had a long career in education and agriculture. He has established or cofounded centers for the study of agriculture and food security throughout the world, released a potato variety (PARS-70), pioneered research on breeding seedless Kinnow, discovered new botanical varieties of wheat, and initiated a program to cure witches'-broom disease of lime in Oman. Dr. Khan is currently leading international projects to combat citrus greening disease and mango sudden death. He has been instrumental in helping UAF to achieve top ranks within the national, QS, and NTU systems. Debmalya Barh is a biotechnologist with decades of experience in integrative omics applied to translational research, and is the founder of the Institute of Integrative Omics and Applied Biotechnology, Nonakuri, India. Dr. Barh has authored more than 150 publications, edited several globally published omics-related reference books, and served as a reviewer for many prestigious international journals. As a result of his significant contributions in promoting research and development usin
