Workshop: Personnel Resources for Occupational Safety and Health Services.
NIOSH 1977 Aug:115-122
Rapid growth is being seen in the field of occupational health and safety. This will continue as public awareness of the importance of this work carries its impact. The need to establish clinic based occupational health and safety programs can no longer be seen as a future goal, but must be addressed as a priority of upmost importance. Specialists in the field must be used to staff these clinics. New resources of personnel must also be found and the people given proper education and training to develop technicians to meet standardized criteria of expertise. The role of the nurses should be expanded. Medical assistance, retirees and part time help, business consultants, and apprenticeship programs are only a few of the possible sources to be considered in gaining workers for this important field.
