Occupational Health Practice, now in its 4th edition, presents a modern approach to the practice of occupational health and occupational medicine, concentrating particularly on those aspects relevant to present day and future practice.
It is ﬁ ve years since the publication of the fourth
edition, and the new century has proved a period
of enormous change in the ﬁ eld of occupational
health. The importance of trying to reduce the costs
of health care has led the government to continue
to look closely at the need for prevention in respect
of work - related disease, and to consider how occu-
pational health cover might be extended to more
workers, especially those in small and medium -
sized enterprises. The Health and Safety Executive,
which in the past tended to concentrate mainly...

Many changes have been made in this book from the last edition. I hope it
will be helpful in providing a good review of public health and preventive
medicine. I also hope you will appreciate how applicable this field is in
everyday clinical practice (even biostatistics principles!) and what an
important impact prevention can have on the health of a population. Many
thanks to the medical students, Lucy Chie, Megan Schwarzman, and
Natalie Holt, for their thoughtful comments.
The field of toxicology has grown enormously since Industrial Toxicology: Safety and Health Applications in the Workplace was first published in 1985. And while the original edition was hugely popular among occupational health professionals, the time is ripe to address toxic agents not only in the industrial setting but also in the environment at large.
This book has emerged from our experience in the education of allied health
professionals (AHPs), particularly student occupational therapists. As tutors we
were aware that students, especially as they neared qualification, struggled to
find a suitable textbook examining the key areas that contextualised their study
of profession-specific skills.
The workplace has been recognized internationally as an appropriate
setting for health promotion. The importance of workplace health
promotion was addressed in 1950 and later updated in 1995 in a joint
International Labour Organization/World Health Organization session on
occupational health (5).
This book is structured in three parts. In Part I, we aim to sensitise you,
the reader, to the complex issues that challenge qualitative researchers
at the planning stage of their projects. In Part II, the challenge of using
different methodologies in practice is critically explored by 15 authors
who share their individual research experiences. Part III examines the
choices we make when we evaluate and present research.
We hope you will find this book both exciting and helpful. Inevitably,
there are many gaps in terms of topics and issues covered, and methodologies
The occupational and environmental safety and health professions have been on merging paths for several
years now. Corporate "down-sizing" or "right-sizing" has resulted in a more streamlined approach to these
once very diverse and quite separate disciplines. Although they both may now be practiced in tandem,
often by the same individuals, each has evolved and developed as a separate area of study. As such, there
are literally thousands of words, terms, and phrases that have specific meanings within their respective
disciplines that may not always be clear and simple....
