In May 2006, the nanotechnology consultancy
firm Lux Research published a report entitled
‘‘Taking action on nanotech environmental, safety
and health risks’’ (Lux Research, 2006). The report
addressed the potential impact of real and perceived
risks on nano-businesses from a commercial
perspective, and concluded that ‘‘One of the biggest
challenges facing firms commercializing
nanotechnology innovations today is managing
environmental, health and safety (EHS) risks)’’.
Employment law relating to occupational health has evolved a long way from
outlawing the sending of little boys up chimneys. The constitution of the occupa-
tional health provider has moved on from being a factory doctor assisted by a
nurse to being a team of health professionals with a wide range of experience and
expertise. Knowledge and understanding of employment law is now an essential
component of occupational health provision.

It is six years since the publication of the third edition, and it has been a period of
enormous change in the field of occupational health. The importance of trying to

and medium-sized enterprises.
There is ample scientific evidence that working (and other organizational) life and its conditions
are powerful determinants of health, for better or for worse. The relationship
works both ways. Work affects health but health, more often than not, also affects a
person’s productivity and earning capacity as well as his or her social and family relationships.
