Oxford Handbook of Occupational Health 2nd Edition
This second edition of the former newcomer to the handbook series covers the broad fi eld of occupational health (OH) and wellbeing. It is aimed primarily at occupational health professionals from all disciplines, including general practitioners (GPs) who practise OH on a sessional basis and a new breed of non-medical case managers who advise on occupational rehabilitation. The book will also be useful for trainees in occupational medicine who are preparing for professional examinations.
We have retained the basic structure and features of the fi rst edition which received good feedback from readers. Six main areas (occupational hazards, occupational diseases, OH practice, specialist disciplines, practical procedures, and emergencies) are covered in twelve sections.

The new edition still provides a ‘quick look-up’ tool (particularly for specific hazards and diseases), and gives a structured overview of some important operational issues such as service provision and the legal framework. The specialist chapters (occupational hygiene, toxicology, epidemiology, environmental medicine, and safety science) aim to give an overall approach to problem-solving, helping to identify the need for (and interpretation of) specialist advice. The inevitable overlap between topics has been minimized by cross-referencing other pages in the handbook, but we have deliberately retained limited duplication where this avoids excessive ‘fl itting’ between pages.
The new material for the second edition refl ects developments in the fi eld of OH and the increasing web-based information store. The principal changes are:
• The updating and signposting of evidence-based and other important guidance where applicable for each topic, including more web references than the previous edition.
• A new emphasis on wellbeing to refl ect the changing role of OH practitioners in optimizing health at work, and minimizing the negative impact of work loss on health.
• New pages on managing chronic pain, psychological therapies, managing psychiatric emergencies, REACH legislation, obesity, policy writing, voice disorders, and evidence-based guidelines in OH.
