Abstract
The statutory language and potential effectiveness of the newly enacted occupational safety and/or health legislation of Arizona, California, Maine, Montana, Wyoming, Vermont, and Minnesota are discussed and compared. The language of the legislation was judged for potential effectiveness according to its explicitness in defining why the regulation was necessary, who or what is to be regulated, and how it is to be regulated, stating the governmental agency, standards, compliance regulations, enforcement, and penalties for violations. It is stressed that the new laws, all of which were enacted between 1968-1969, demonstrate a new trend which shows that states are beginning to recognize health as a distinct, substantial, and unique responsibility that warrants equal status with other state responsibilities, and the states are beginning to grant this equal status by defining occupational safety and health in appropriate statutory language.
