Abstract This volume addresses proposed US strategies for the prevention of disorders of reproduction, neurotoxic disorders, noise-induced hearing loss, dermatological conditions and psychological disorders. A section on each disorder looks at the background to the problem and provides an assessment of its scope. Types of occupational hazards are discussed together with a description of the work-related disorders reported. Proposed prevention strategies include a definition of research needs, both in the laboratory and in terms of surveillance and epidemiology, public information and education and adequate dissemination of information, implementation of appropriate prevention and control programmes.
