Impact of National Health Insurance on Occupational Safety and Health Services for Small Businesses.
NIOSH 1977 Aug:5-13
Proposed plans for national health insurance are discussed in relation to their impact on occupational health and safety. Occupational health programs are generally limited to the prevention, detection and control of job-related illness and injury; selection and placement of the worker; and fostering of productivity. A national health service, rather than health insurance is recommended to solve the US health problem. Emphasis should be placed on prevention, manpower training, and education of the worker.
