Dr. Philip Harber, senior editor of the new book ‘Occupational Health for Higher Education and Research Institutions’, coordinated an accomplished team of editors and writers to produce this insightful work that provides an overview of the unique occupational health challenges encountered at higher education and research institutions, and how to manage them.
Higher education and research institutions face unique challenges when it comes to managing occupational health risks in both laboratory settings and fieldwork research. A new book edited by Philip Harber, MD, MPH, adjunct professor in the Department of Community, Environment and Policy at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona, provides an overview of the hazards, regulatory requirements, and other issues specific to these institutions, as well as recommendations on how to manage them.
Occupational Health for Higher Education and Research Institutions: A Guide for Employee Health and Student Health Programs addresses occupational health topics pertinent to institutional research and features authors affiliated with higher education and research institutions across the country.
“It was an honor to collaborate with many of the top level occupational health professionals in the country to compile this book,” said Dr. Harber, “I hope it will build on the progress already made towards occupational health in these institutions that do so much to advance health research and science.”
In addition to Dr. Harber, the book’s editors include Beth A. Baker, MD, MPH, affiliate assistant professor at the University of Minnesota, and Mark Russi, MD, MPH, professor of medicine and epidemiology at Yale University. The book contains contributions from more than 20 authors from higher education institutions around the country.
The book Occupational Health for Higher Education and Research Institutions is currently available for order through the publisher, OEM Press.
