||This book is intended to serve as a guide to the early recognition, diagnosis and treatment of occupational diseases. The first part deals with the principles of early detection and the second describes various occupational diseases and approaches to their early detection and control. The physiology of the body systems affected by the diseases and the clinical and laboratory tests for their early detection are discussed in the third part. The final part presents biological and environmental methods for the assessment of exposure to occupational hazards. Although this book is addressed mainly to health professionals at various levels responsible for occupational health, it should in addition prove useful to medical students, workers' representatives, and managers responsible for safety at work.
