||Occupational risk factors in the WHO global burden of disease: Comparative risk assessment study
||Aug. 2002, Vol.18, No.4, p.339-346. 44 ref.
||The World Health Organization (WHO) has been conducting a series of international studies connected with the Global Burden of Disease project. These studies have been aimed at developing best estimates of the disease burden borne by the total human population. It is recognized that occupational factors are core contributors to the burden of short and long-term disability and death. This article briefly reviews the original Global Burden of Disease project, provides background information on the more recent stage of the project involving comparative risk assessment and presents detailed information on the contributions made to the project by Australian occupational safety and health researchers.
