Dear friends,
Appreciate the discussion and the interest shown on the subject as its gaining its due place in the modern life style we have now. Eager to see more materials. With my limited exposure I had with a National Institute devoted to Health & Occupational Psychology which I associated with about a decade ago, I would also suggest you to study the materials relating to Occupational hygiene & diseases, work ethics & environmental science etc also along with the Ergonomics & Psychology.
Wish you all the very best of the Season and purposeful New Year.
