Thirteen case studies are presented arranged in four parts: cohort studies (video display terminals and adverse pregnancy outcomes; heart disease and carbon monoxide exposure; larynx cancer and exposure to acid mists); case-control and proportionate mortality studies (end-stage renal disease; cancer and exposure to vinyl chloride, diesel exhausts and silica); cross-sectional studies (kidney dysfunction in cadmium workers; carpal tunnel syndrome among grocery store workers; cytogenetic study of workers exposed to ethylene dibromide); surveillance and screening studies (occupational lead surveillance; bladder cancer among chemical workers; occupational skin disease and contact dermatitis).
