Abstract
Each year in the United States, 5,000 to 6,000 workers die from acute traumatic occupational injuries. Similarly, the causes of, and methods to prevent many occupational diseases are well known. Work can be hazardous! However, more importantly, most hazards can be anticipated, and prevented. Occupational health is a field within public health devoted to the prevention of occupational disease and injury. This book, thoroughly updated from its first edition published in 1991, provides information to assist in anticipating the potential for disease or injury, recognizing occupational diseases and injuries, evaluating relevant data, and designing and implementing control measures.
