View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Occupational Health Pocket Consultant enjoyed substantial international success in its third edition, with sales of over 7,000 copies worldwide. It is important to note that this book covers both medicine (managing occupational disease) and hygiene (prevention of occupational disease and minimisation of risks). No other similarly brief synoptic book provides this coverage. Additional sections on nursing and law extend its unique characteristics. In this thoroughly revised edition, the book has been reorganised to mirror the new international regulations on occupational health, which give particular emphasis to assessment and management of risk.

From the Back Cover:

This is a guide for those practicing occupational health in the widest sense: physicians, nurse, occupational hygienists, safety officers, environmental health offices and personnel managers. It has been written as a primer for appropriate courses (AFOM, LBIOH) and as a useful reference source for those who are more familiar with the subject. It is the only synoptic account of both occupational medicine and hygiene, and the previous edition enjoyed substantial international success.


"At such a modest price this useful introduction can be recommended to all new doctors and hygenists to the specialty."
Community Medicine

"This volume, unlike many others in the field, fuses occupational medicine and occupational hygiene into one volume, encompassing an extraordinarily wide range in a pocket-sized volume."
Journal of the Institute of Health Education

"This is a great little book and I wholeheartedly recommend it."
Health & Safety Society Reviews Bulletin

"The first delight about it is that it measures 7.5" by 4" and is 0.5" thick, so that it fits easily into a pocket or handbag...I recommend this book to all occupational health practitioners. It is not a book for the shelf but one for the pocket or handbag, to be referred to at all times."
Nursing Standard

"...has indeed "met a need that has not previously been satisfied."
The British Medical Journal
