This Directory, as recently announced by the Alfred M. Best Company's Safety Engineering Division, is unique in that it combines all the best practical features of a safety manual, directory, index, encyclopedia and catalogue into one comprehensive, profusely illustrated volume. It is the what, how and where book of safety;" it shows what safety products or devices to use for specific hazards, how to use them and where to get them. Best's was the first safety directory published and is still the only one in the field. One outstanding feature of this book is its indexing and subject-grouping system. These devices—plus countless illustrations—make it easy to locate safety products even when the user is not certain of the type or name of the product he needs. The logical arrangement of subjects also serves as a checklist of hazards—many of which are frequently overlooked. This second annual edition will be appreciated
