Plant Survey and Inspection

  • R. J. G. Rycroft

Abstract

For the dermatologist, the purpose of a visit to the workplace will generally be for assistance in diagnosis, though secondary prevention is also likely to be an aim. Similar principles apply, however, to surveys and inspections by occupational-health professionals, who are likely to be more concerned with primary prevention or regulation.
