FOREWORD

Library

Growing recognition of the importance of the working environment in the maintenance and improvement of health and safety has intensified interest in legislation vesting authority in various State agencies for the correction of health and accident hazards and the promotion of improved working conditions.

This compilation was prepared by the former Division of Occupational Health, now known as the Occupational Health Program of the Division of Special Health Services of the Public Health Service. It consists of citations and excerpts or digests of laws and regulations dealing with occupational health and safety. No attempt has been made to evaluate the adequacy or effectiveness of the various provisions. For those interested, suggested language for a State occupational health and safety bill has been worked out by the Bureau of Labor Standards of the U. S. Department of Labor, in cooperation with State labor administrators, management and labor. Copies may be obtained by writing either to the Department of Labor, Washington 25, D. C., or the Council of State Governments, 1737 K Street, NW, Washington 6, D. C.

It is the sincere hope of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and the Department of Labor, both concerned with the well-being of workers, that this publication may contribute to a better understanding of the separate and joint responsibilities of health, labor and other authorities for the protection of the life, health and safety of workers. Where there are overlaps in jurisdiction, the development of a feeling of partnership between the agencies in carrying out their responsibilities will aid materially in the accomplishment of their common objectives.
