Origins of Occupational Health Associations in the World Summary

Origins of Occupational Health Associations in the World by A. Grieco

A full history of workplace prevention has never been written, although there are a number of important but anecdotal accounts of distinguished academic, professional and political leaders in the field. The history of medicine is also often presented as the history of distinguished physicians, rather than in terms of developments in health care or prevention. This is especially marked in the field of worker protection where there has been only limited interest among physicians and historians. It is particularly difficult to make comparisons between different countries, or across social and political and cultural boundaries. This book attempts to 'boldly go' into such new fields.
