Occupational Toxicology deals with chemicals in the workplace and introduces the reader to the basic aspects of the science of toxicology that underpin the application of toxicological information to the workplace. The book contains chapters on the most important workplace exposures such as metals, pesticides, solvents, plastics, gases, and particulate matter and informs the reader as to the types of toxicity seen in the workplace environment and the organs likely to be affected. The lung and the skin are given individual attention as these are important sites of injury/disease caused by exposure to chemicals. It also covers genotoxicity, and cancer and their testing.

"The contributors are all well recognized in their field . They have written a highly readable, concise book, with sufficient detail for undergraduates and newer postgraduates to follow. The authors have also made excellent use of references, bibliographies and directed readings . The text is well supported by examples and cases, and represents excellent value for money. I referred extensively to the first edition in my teaching and will continue to do so with the second, so I am please to recommend it to students, teachers and researchers in occupational health." - The Journal of Occupational Health and Safety - Australia and New Zealand, Vol. 21, No. 1, Feb. 2005
