Abstract
Because of the increased emphasis on occupational safety and health, the need for individuals trained in occupational pharmacology is seen as urgent. Occupational pharmacology is defined as a science that includes knowledge of chemicals found in the working environment, of their interaction with drugs taken by workers, and of the use of drugs to prevent and eradicate occupational disease. An occupational pharmacologist needs training in physiology, biochemistry, statistics, and toxicology, as well as pharmacology. It is maintained that in implementing the OSH Act of 1970, occupational pharmacologists are needed to develop criteria for standard setting processes and to develop documents establishing health and safety standards for industries.
