Searching for causes of work-related diseases : An introduction to epidemiology at the work site
This book provides an introduction to the principles of epidemiology - the collection and logical analysis of data concerning workers' experiences with ill-health. By identifying a set of working conditions or work processes that cause disease, it may then be possible to eliminate or minimise the occurrence of such a disease. This book describes the ways in which health hazards can be investigated using epidemiological techniques, how these latter can be carried out, and the necessary prerequisites to drawing valid conclusions from such studies.
