||Viral hepatitis as an occupational disease
||Virushepatitis als Berufskrankheit [in German]|
||1986, Vol.41, No.11, p.805-809. 19 ref.
||During the last 5 years there has been no further decrease of acute viral hepatitis as an occupational disease. Essential aspects of occupational medicine regarding acute viral hepatitis are discussed: recognition as an occupational disease, estimation of the damage affecting the body, fixing the date of re-examination, change of workplace, questions of fitness to work and legislation. Important prophylactic principles: strict observance of hygienic principles, regular checkups and, in future, active immunisation against hepatitis B in risk areas.
