Epidemiology is the science that studies the distribution and determinants of health-related conditions and events in populations, such as a community or a workforce or workers assigned to a particular area in a plant. It is typically used to discover the likely causes of disease or injury and the risk factors that make the risk better or worse. Occupational epidemiology applies the principles of epidemiology to the work environment.

Keywords:   occupational epidemiology, health-related conditions, populations, workforce, community, disease, injury, risk factors, work environment, epidemiology
