This week we learn the importance of epidemiology in preventing disease as it applies to environmental hazards and occupational hazards and accidents. Your assignment for this discussion is to apply this to your own occupational environment, or if you cant study something that impacts your community. Determine an occupational or community hazard that you meet every day. This could be a chemical, a disease, air pollution, water issues, etc. Just make sure it is an environmental or occupational hazard that impacts you or your community. Find a study about this and critique it. What type of study was completed? What did they find? What preventions or recommendations did this study have? How does this impact you? If you are unable to determine a hazard for you or your occupation, consider Chernobyl, oil spills, hurricanes, wildfires, lead exposure in children, or the great fog in London. What major impacts occured as a result of these due to health and then policy changes?
