"According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 160 million new cases of work-related diseases occur worldwide each year, and roughly 1.1 million people are killed annually as a result of work-related illnesses and injuries. The National Occupational Research Agenda estimates that $121 billion are spent each year on issues related to the deaths and illnesses caused by work environments. These figures illustrated the need for such a work as The Encyclopedia of Work-Related Illnesses, Injuries, and Health Issues. This book provides its readers with more than 350 entries that define terms and issues from absenteeism to zoonoses and poses the following questions: How can workplace safety be improved? How many employee illnesses are caused by work-related factors such as stress or unhealthy working environments?" "Appendixes include numerous charts with statistics concerning mortality rates of work-related illnesses, as well as directories of helpful organizations. The Encyclopedia of Work-Related Illnesses, Injuries, and Health Issues is a valuable tool for anyone who seeks to understand and improve safety in the work environment."--Jacket
