Occupational & Environmental Medicine

These are designed to help you achieve important learning objectives in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. You should attempt these on your own, or with a colleague. Some of the tasks may be tackled in small group teaching. Your teachers will advise.


Besides your education, what other work have you done? 

List the following in columns:

(a) the hazardous agents or circumstances that were potentially relevant to health

(b) the nature of the respective health risks, their likelihood and severity

(c) the steps taken to inform about and to prevent those risks

Pause and consider if you were a qualified physician, whether you would recognise those health risks and how you would react to them - in particular, what advice would you give about prevention?
