Occupational Health Services : A Practical Approach
First published in 1989, Occupational Health Services: A Practical Approach was written for those responsible for the management and delivery of occupational health services and has become something of a classic. Its five sections cover systems, delivery, administration, management and the medical aspects of occupational health services. Four appendices contain additional information, including an outline for a comprehensive audit. "The standard is high. A lot of common sense has been gathered in this book. This useful and stimulating book will make many of us rethink attitudes and positions that have become established over the years." CMAJ "Lead author Tee Guidotti, one of the foremost authors and teachers in occupational medicine, brings a style and thoroughness which is outstanding. Detail and content are excellent throughout the work with a high degree of practicality in most sections." Am. Ind. Hyg. Assoc. J. "This brief review does not do justice to this valuable text. Every occupational student, physician, government agency, union officer, attorney and employer must acquire a copy of Occupational Health Services: A Practical Approach. The appendices and tables in themselves are worth the cost of the book."
