How safe are nurses while caring for others? What risks to their own health does the caring role impose? This handbook on occupational health for nurses takes into account the changes in health service policy, in health and safety law and in employers' rights that have occurred recently. It should be useful for NHS safety representatives and union stewards, indeed for all nurses, midwives and health visitors in practice, management or education.
