Abstract
The instructor's resource guide for a short course in occupational carcinogenesis is presented. The course consists of eight lesson units and is designed primarily for use by occupational health and safety professionals, educators, and representatives of business and government agencies. The first lesson introduces the student to the field of occupational carcinogenesis and the extent and magnitude of the problem in terms of its effect on health and society. Lesson 2 deals with the toxicological elements of cancer development. The third lesson deals with the qualitative and quantitative considerations underlying governmental regulations of carcinogens. The fourth lesson covers the general role of regulating occupational carcinogens. The OSHA Cancer Policy is presented along with the proposed model standard. Lesson 5 deals with OSHA inspection procedures for carcinogenic agents. The sixth lesson covers employee/employer medical recordkeeping and medical surveillance. Lesson 7 is concerned with respiratory protection and personal protective equipment. Lesson 8 contains a case history designed to test the ability of the student to organize, apply, and relate the appropriate topics presented in the course.
