About this book

This book provides occupational health (OH) professionals with a theoretical basis for addressing the ethical issues that they confront in their practice. There is often a lack of in-depth moral analysis of the issues that OH practitioners face on a daily basis. The ICOH Code of Ethics sets out the important principles that guide OH practice. This book builds on these core principles, starting from an application of moral theories in the OH context and illustrating how ethical conflicts could be resolved, by carrying out ethical analyses of several case studies. In this way, it aims to link ethical theory to OH practice.

Reviews

“Both those in occupational health work and professional ethicists will find this book useful. … The subject matter's organization is concise and novel. … Tamin's book is important and I believe it will not only be read, but broadly applied.” (John T. Pierce, Doody's Book Reviews, March 19, 2021)
