Health care workers, administrators and politicians will be confronted with these occupational health issues.This book outlines the various occupational health issues in national development and proposes a system of planning for the health services for the working population. It is the result of a two week ICOH Seminar where international experts addressed the issue of developing occupational health services for various countries.
