It was during the Industrial revolution when public attention was drawn to the various occupational diseases and work-related health hazards. Clinicians showed a growing deal of interest in the subject in the 20th century, following the footsteps of such doyens as Thomas Legge and Donald Hunter. However, to actually visit workplaces to acquaint oneself with the hazards remains a luxury for most clinicians. This book has an array of photographs of workplaces and work-related diseases, which tries to provide a realistic pictorial substitute. It is ideal for the trainee and occupational health physicians, and serves as a concise textbook as well as an illustrative reference for almost all occupational disorders and their causes. The book has the chapters arranged as per the ninth edition of Hunter's Diseases of Occupations, and can be read in conjunction with this reference book.
This book is recommended as a reference book for any library.
