According to the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly 6,000 workers were killed on the job in 2006. Presenting a comprehensive survey of occupational safety and health in the United States, Introduction to Occupational Health in Public Health Practice focuses on recognizing, preventing, and treating work-related and environmentally induced injuries and diseases. Drawing from their thirty-five years of experience in the management of public health programs and occupational safety and health management, the authors provide graduate and undergraduate students with important linkages between preventive public health approaches and occupational safety and health needs.
