A self-help manual for all who work in hospitals, this provides key data for the recognition and control of work hazards, with an emphasis on prevention. The detailed information on specific hazards includes an account of the occupational groups most at risk and sets out the measures required for control. Anyone currently working in a hospital will want to have access to this book; it will prove to be an extremely useful training resource for nurses, hospital technicians and health administrators. After training as a nurse at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Wendy Sinclair nursed in Africa, taught nurses and worked as an infection Control Sister at the Children's Hospital, Camperdown. She has also worked in occupational health and safety for a trade union and for the New South Wales Department of Health.
