Abstract
Occupational and environmental health issues profoundly affect every person's health and well-being. Each of us has a responsibility to address the issues that affect us as individuals, as members of families and communities, and as citizens of the world. As we prepared the sixth edition of this textbook, we directed our attention to how health professionals can recognize and prevent occupational and environmental disease and injury - at both the individual and population levels. We developed this book to enable health professionals and students in the health professions to understand these issues and the contexts in which they occur. Dramatic changes continue to impact both occupational health - ranging from the recognition of new workplace health hazards to the changing nature of work itself - and environmental health - ranging from climate change to how airborne contaminants adversely affect health. And dramatic changes continue to impact how we obtain, analyze, communicate, and use information for research, practice, and advocacy in this field. Moreover, relationships between occupational health and environmental health are increasingly recognized: Occupational health hazards can affect communities, Environmental health problems frequently originate in workplaces. And work-related hazards, environmental degradation, poverty, and social injustice are often interrelated. This textbook aims to reflect these developments and to enable readers to prepare themselves to recognize and prevent occupational and environmental disease and injury in a changing world.
