  • Description

About 45 per cent of the world's population and 58 per cent of the population over ten years of age constitute the global workforce. International Labour Organization estimates for the year 2000 and beyond is 20 million work-related deaths per year. The World Health Organization estimates that only 10 to 15 per cent of workers have access to a basic standard of occupational health services, and that occupational injuries represent 0.9 per cent (13.1 million) of the global daily loss of human lives. There is therefore need to ensure the good health of workers. Doctors need training in clinical occupational medicine, starting from their undergraduate years. This is because doctors in many branches of medicine are finding themselves confronted by diseases induced by occupational and environmental factors which they are not familiar with. This book started with the history and evolution of occupational health, followed by the principles and practice and then special topics. Practical and clinical occupational medicine are emphasized

Occupational Health: Interplay of Work, Environment and Health is primarily addressed to students of Medicine (undergraduates and postgraduates), resident doctors in Public Health Medicine and Occupational Medicine. It will also be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students of other related fields like Nursing, etc.
