Occupational Health: A Guide to Sources of Information is a compilation of papers that can be used as reference when seeking information and knowledge related to health hazards found in the workplace. The information given in the book pertains mostly to the United Kingdom, though additional references can be helpful when used in other countries. The text enumerates the qualifications and trainings required for occupational physicians, medical officers, consultants, nurses, and part-time workers. The book also includes training courses in the USA, Australia, and South Africa. The epidemiological approach to occupational health hazards and problems, including the spread of community diseases in terms of age, social class, and time factors, is discussed. Of interest is the chapter on ergonomics where the interrelations between humans and their occupations are studied. Another useful chapter for administrators in the occupational health sector is the design of an occupational health department and first aid stations. Related topics include management, handling trade unions, and even environmental pollution. Details of occupational medicine in selected countries of the European Economic Community, the work of the WHO and the ILO, and other additional information from countries such as Israel, India. Sudan, and Zambia are included. This book is an informative reading for physicians, nurses, hygienists, ergonomists, biomedical engineers, and students and trainees in occupational medicine.
