Occupational Health is the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations by preventing departures from health, controlling risks and the adaptation of work to people, and people to their jobs.

Occupational Health Nursing has now become a major reference text on occupational health nursing courses. It is the only book on the market written entirely by occupational health nurses for nurses. This 3rd edition brings the book up to date with new legislation, guidance and developments.

This book can be used for quick reference purposes or as a resource for more detailed research and projects. Each chapter stands alone and authors have been chosen for their particular expertise in the topic.
