Description

Now in its third revised edition, students and practitioners involved in the field of Occupational Health cannot afford to be without this comprehensive and widely-acclaimed book. Drawing on their experience as health care professionals, the authors explain how Occupational Health has had to expand beyond the factory walls to include the holistic treatment of workers, and a consideration of workers' families. It looks at the relationship between work and health as a two-way process in which the working environment may affect the health of workers, and the workers' state of health may impact on their ability to do their jobs. The text gives clear guidelines on how to deal with this relationship.
