||MD thesis. Importance of infectious diseases (excluding parasitoses) in occupational pathology, followed by a review of the preventive aspects of occupational health, which is limited to a few diseases given more favourable treatment, and of the 3 types of disease for which compensation is provided for by French legislation: occupational diseases (bacterial, viral and rickettsial diseases), occupational accidents (complications of cuts, wounds, etc.) and diseases attributable to work but compensated under sickness insurance (diseases to which personnel are exposed in bacteriology laboratories, medical personnel and employees required to work in other countries). The author makes suggestions for improved preventive measures and more easily available compensation.
