Abstract
Safety and health problems can be solved only when the major professions involved, economics, law, medicine, and engineering, cooperate fully in working towards solutions, although incorporating preventive measures may be initially more expensive, prevention costs far less than disability, restoration or welfare. The disadvantage of making conscientious manufacturers share the expenses of workers' compensation is noted. The legal responsibilities of employers are noted. Most progress has been made in the medical field, in the etiology and cure of diseases. Much progress is still to be made in engineering, in the design of safe equipment and the control of physical hazards. (Contract No 210-76-0118)
