Abstract
Despite significant advances in worker health promotion and protection in the last several decades, there remains as yet no reliable estimate of the magnitude of the medical and economic burden posed by occupational diseases and injuries. Efforts to determine the nature and extent of occupational diseases are more elusive than for injuries; the latter, at least in theory, are more readily definable outcomes with more easily recognized causes, Chapter 2.3 provides an overview of data sources and information about the distribution of both fatal and nonfatal occupational injuries. In addition, because of significant differences in health and economic infrastructure between developed and developing countries, Chapter 2.2 provides an overview of occupational health conditions in developing countries. This section of the chapter reviews some of the problems defining the extent of occupational diseases in developed countries, focusing on what is known and not known in the United States. Readers will gain greater information about specific disease entities in the epidemiology overviews provided in Section Three of this text.
