Preliminary Industrial Hygiene Survey of Indiana Industries

Preliminary Industrial Hygiene Survey of Indiana Industries This is another of the statistical presentations defining industrial hazards associated with particular occupations which have been undertaken by divisions of industrial hygiene in state health departments at the original behest of the U. S. Public Health Service. The results of the survey are presented in sixty-one tables, together with other illustrative material and text. Facilities now provided by industry to protect workers from harmful exposures are meager, according to this evidence, a situation which the creation of a division of industrial hygiene is designed, at least partially, to correct. Other recommendations in the report urge that occupational diseases be reported by physicians, that industrial plants maintain acceptable and uniform absence records, and that medical and nursing service be widely extended. Evidently much educational work is necessary before every one in industry will draw full benefit from an industrial hygiene program. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

This is another of the statistical presentations defining industrial hazards associated with particular occupations which have been undertaken by divisions of industrial hygiene in state health departments at the original behest of the U. S. Public Health Service. The results of the survey are presented in sixty-one tables, together with other illustrative material and text. Facilities now provided by industry to protect workers from harmful exposures are meager, according to this evidence, a situation which the creation of a division of industrial hygiene is designed, at least partially, to correct. Other recommendations in the report urge that occupational diseases be reported by physicians, that industrial plants maintain acceptable and uniform absence records, and that medical and nursing service be widely extended. Evidently much educational work is necessary before every one in industry will draw full benefit from an industrial hygiene program.
