Provides an essential guide to best practice for all occupational health practitioners

This readable guide to the law will help to ensure both business success and respect for individual employment rights. The cost of sickness absence can present major costs and business management problems. Safeguarding health is therefore vital to both individuals and employers.

It explores key issues in occupational health practice from pre-employment, through health surveillance and occupational health services, to termination of employment. Topics explored include ethical and confidentiality issues, discrimination, data protection, working abroad, pregnancy and maternity leave, workplace policies, drugs and alcohol testing, stress, counselling, health surveillance and professional conduct rules.
