Oxford Handbook of Occupational Health 2nd Edition PDF
3.9 MB PDF
This second edition of the former newcomer to the handbook series covers the broad field of occupational health (OH) and well being. It is aimed primarily at occupational health professionals from all disciplines, including general practitioners (GPs) who practice OH on a sessional basis and a new breed of non-medical case managers who advise on occupational rehabilitation. The book will also be useful for trainees in occupational medicine who are preparing for professional examinations.
We have retained the basic structure and features of the first edition which received good feedback from readers. Six main areas (occupational hazards, occupational diseases, OH practice, specialist disciplines, practical procedures, and emergencies) are covered in twelve sections. The new edition still provides a ‘quick look-up’ tool (particularly for specific hazards and diseases), and gives a structured overview of some important operational issues such as service provision and the legal framework. The specialist chapters (occupational hygiene, toxicology, epidemiology, environmental medicine, and safety science) aim to give an overall approach to problem-solving, helping to identify the need for (and interpretation of) specialist advice. The inevitable overlap between topics has been minimized by cross-referencing other pages in the handbook, but we have deliberately retained limited duplication where this avoids excessive ‘flitting’ between pages.
