    Occupational Health for Higher Education and Research Institutions: A Guide for Employee Health and Student Health Programs

    Philip Harber, MD, MPH
    Beth A. Baker, MD, MPH
    Mark Russi, MD, MPH

    COMING JULY 2022!
    An E-book option will be available to order separately upon publication of the print book


    Occupational Health for Higher Education and Research Institutions: A Guide for Employee Health and Student Health Programs provides a comprehensive overview of unique occupational health challenges encountered in these institutions and how to manage them. While the organizations are extremely diverse, ranging from small colleges to large research universities, they also include technical schools, research institutes, and government agencies with extensive research activities. As such, the variety of hazards and the available preventive resources can vary widely and require understanding and collaboration among occupational medicine specialists, student health providers, and institutional health and safety officers, review committees, and administrators.
    The book fills an important gap, emphasizing occupational health concerns such as evaluation and protection of research workers; recognizing and responding to biologic, chemical, and physical hazards; laboratory and large animal contact; fieldwork; legal and regulatory requirements; and other issues specific to the higher education and research industry.
