Abstract
Occupational and environmental health is the multidisciplinary approach to the recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention and control of disease, injuries, and other adverse health conditions resulting from hazardous environmental exposures in the workplace, the home, or the community. It is part of public health-what we, as a society, do collectively to assure that the conditions in which people live and work are healthy. Occupational and environmental health is an integral part of many disciplines.
