Hutchison MK, ed. Rockville, MD: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 77-123, 1976 Nov; :1-120
This Guide discusses various factors associated with establishing the relationship between disease and occupation. Prepared as an aid to State agencies, physicians, and others concerned with workers' compensation for occupational disease, the publication describes a method for collecting, organizing, and appraising medical, occupational, and other evidence with the aim of determining the probable work-relatedness of a given disease. Illustrative material on five disease-producing agents: asbestos (1332214), carbon- monoxide (630080), inorganic lead (7439921), noise, and toluene- diisocyanate (584849), is included. The Guide also contains a list of occupations with potential exposure to selected agents, and other information that may be useful to those with decision-making responsibility in cases of occupational disease.
