||Nurses are an integral component of the health care delivery system. In discharging their duties, nurses encounter a variety of occupational health problems which may be categorised into biological, chemical, physical and psychosocial hazards. A review of some examples of each of these four types of hazards is presented. Particular attention has been devoted to hepatitis B, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, tuberculosis, cytotoxic drugs, anaesthetic agents, needlestick injury, back pain, and stress.
