Abstract
Factors concerning the relationship between disease and occupation, including evidence of disease, epidemiology, evidence of exposure, aggravation of preexisting conditions, and validity of testimony, are discussed to aid physicians, state agencies, and others concerned with compensation of workers and determinations of whether a disease is work related. A method of collecting, organizing, and evaluating medical, occupational, and additional evidence is described. Information on 14 disease producing substances is presented to illustrate the decision making process. A list of occupations with potential exposure to specific agents is included, along with occupational and nonoccupational disease case histories, a sample respiratory questionnaire, and a glossary.
