This study was designed to evaluate occupational health and safety advice services, operating and giving advice in GP waiting rooms, as closely as possible to how they existed at the time of commencement of the study, without any major modification being made to the type of advice they gave. Voluntary participants were asked to complete standardised questionnaires gathering information on the hazards to which they were exposed at work, their working environments and possible work-related symptoms along with other relevant demographic data. The provision of information, advice, health surveillance and support to working participants identified in need of help was performed according to established protocols already in operation at the occupational health projects.
