About ES&H Manual (PUB-3000) Chapters

The basic unit of the on-line PUB-3000 is the chapter (see, e.g., Chapter 13 on Gases). Because a chapter, as it appears in the ES&H Manual (PUB-3000) website, does not necessarily correspond to a chapter's pagination in the printed PUB-3000, you will not see page numbers and footers that correspond to those in the published version. The revision date for each chapter appears below the chapter title at the beginning of each chapter.

The official or current version is located on the ES&H Manual (PUB-3000) website. Printed versions are not official. Users are responsible for working with the latest approved version of the PUB-3000.
