Fully, updated and revised, the second edition of Occupational Health Services is designed for professionals who deliver, manage, and hold oversight responsibility for occupational health in an organization or in the community. Provides the busy practitioner and clinic manager guidance in setting up, running, and improving health care services for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and occupational management of work-related health issues. The text gives an overview of occupational health care in the US and Canada with information about how it is organized, who pays for what, how it is regulated, and how workers' compensation works.
