||Zoonoses are diseases transmitted to man by animals. Common ways of becoming infected include working in occupations involving contact with animals. An understanding of the means of transmission of these diseases enables the selection of appropriate protective measures. These should be based on limiting risks at the source by adopting strict hygiene measures within the premises and at the individual level and by wearing personal protective equipment suited to the mode of entry of the responsible microorganism. Workers should also be informed of the potential hazards. This article describes the main zoonoses encountered in occupational settings and the corresponding means of prevention.
