Release of the 1992 Supplement to the Work-Related Lung Disease Surveillance Report

CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has released the Work Related Lung Disease (WoRLD) Surveillance Report, Supplement 1992 (1). The original report, released in 1991, summarizes surveillance data for occupational respiratory diseases. The 1992 supplement is an update and includes data not previously presented from multiple cause-of-death data, the National Hospital Discharge Survey, and the Sentinel Event Notification System for Occupational Risks (SENSOR) program. The report, compiled by the Division of Respiratory Disease Studies, contains information of use to public health officials, researchers, management and labor officials, and others working in occupational health disciplines.

Copies of the original WoRLD report and the 1992 WoRLD supplement are available from the NIOSH hotline, (800) 356-4674 ({800} 35-NIOSH).
