Protecting Workers' Health in the Third World: National and International Strategies

Synopsis

This highly authoritative volume focuses sorely needed attention on the problems and policies associated with Third World workers and occupation-linked health conditions. The writers identify major obstacles that block effective implementation of occupational health and safety measures in developing countries and provide examples of successful steps taken to improve workers' health environment. National and international strategies are proposed to improve health even as the countries struggle to industrialize, adapt to new technologies, and advance their economies.
