MEDIA REVIEWS

"The stats and overview would provide a student of occupational health with excellent data as an introduction to the topic or for a Member of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine project. The book would also be useful for anyone preparing a presentation or policy on the topic, but it is not going to meet the needs of the practitioner looking for solutions in the workplace." Reviewed by: Nerys Williams on behalf of the Occupational Medicine Journal, Jan 2015
