Abstract
The prevention of occupational disease and injuries was reviewed using a public health approach. The following topics were discussed: anticipation of occupational diseases and injuries, which include hazard identification and control; preplacement medical examinations; return to work examinations, and worksite health promotion; surveillance, which include hazard surveillance and medical surveillance, and data sources for information on occupational diseases or injury; systematic analysis to determine if intervention is necessary to control hazards, of which epidemiology, toxicology, and evidence and reasoning in public health play a role; and hazard controls which are designed with consideration for the hierarchy of controls, of the existence of physical hazards, and in relation to injury prevention. A reading list was provided for further information.
