Health Surveillance in Industry.
NIOSH 1977 Jul:59-64
Some problems affecting occupational health surveillance are considered: multiple exposures, multiple effects of individual exposures, interaction of occupational and nonoccupational factors, and the complexity of health evaluation, because of its more positive connotations and emphasis on prevention, the term health surveillance is to be preferred to medical surveillance. The adoption of a uniform basic core health surveillance scheme is urged, which would eliminate duplication, ease administration, improve quality of examinations and facilitate comparative studies. The work of industrial hygiene monitoring, epidemiology, and disability and workers' compenstion toward the objective of worker health is considered. (Contract No. 210-76-0118)
