The third edition of this bulletin has been reissued to meet a steady demand. Nine hundred occupations, actually or potentially hazardous to the health of workers, are listed alphabetically. The hazards themselves are arranged according to a useful classification whereby symptoms, occupations in which they occur and methods of prevention are correlated. There is also a partial list of skin irritants identified with certain occupations. Physicians will find it time saving to consult this useful compilation as an introduction to more extended treatment in the standard textbooks on industrial health in the study of cases in which occupation is suspected as a contributor to poor health.
