[Undergraduate and postgraduate training in occupational hygiene (and medicine) during non-medical studies].

Abstract:

:It is well known that the employer bears the responsibility for all what is going on in every type of enterprise. Polish high schools (all types) do not provide future managers with full range of education as they do not teach their alumni about occupational medicine and hygiene. Curricula should include classes devoted to the presentation and discussion of the Labor Code, work safety management, preplacement examinations, occupational diseases, work-related diseases, accidents at work and their effects. The aim of this study is to make clear to our field specialists that there is an urgent need to create an adequate lobby promoting occupational hygiene and medicine in order to raise their position and to facilitate contacts with employers.
