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.


Consider what combination of potential health problems and work practices relevant to you as a health care worker could pose a health and safety risk to yourself and/or to others. What steps should you take, and should your employer take steps to reduce these risks?

Remember that even if you are not yet an employer, in due course you will probably have the responsibilities of an employer. In any case even now you are almost certainly owed and have some responsibilities as an 'employee'. Therefore it is important that you should appreciate the duties and responsibilities of both these perspectives now.
