Diseases of Occupation: From the Legislative, Social, and Medical Points of View

Article metrics

Abstract

THE present work deals with one of the most attractive branches of preventive medicine. It is the time of legislative interference between employers and workmen, and at no time has the health of the community been held in higher regard. If the regulation of the health of workpeople is to be effected in that practical manner which has always distinguished the progress of sanitary science in this country, it is urgently necessary that those in whose hands such regulation lies should be more thoroughly conversant with the medical side of the problem.
