Few occupational groups face as broad an array of environmental hazards as persons working in the health professions. Exposures to ionizing radiation; electromagnetic fields; ultrasound; ergonomic stresses; carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic, and other toxic chemicals; and an enormous variety of infectious agents all confront those who work in patient care and associated laboratory settings.
