Noxen am Arbeitsplatz: Gibt es noch Berufskrankheiten in der Schweiz?


Hotz, Philipp; Hinnen, Urs; Schuler, G; Gutzwiller, Felix (1992). Noxen am Arbeitsplatz: Gibt es noch Berufskrankheiten in der Schweiz? Therapeutische Umschau. Revue thérapeutique, 49(2):93-96.

Abstract

The statistics about work-related diseases influence greatly the setting of prevention priorities. It is consequently of prime importance that these statistics correctly mirror the reality. This paper summarizes the results of studies which show that the real prevalence of work-related diseases is probably two to three times greater than generally admitted; therefore, it seems very important to improve the quality of diagnosis and of data collection.
