Abstract
Necessary changes to fulfill further mandates of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act are discussed. Concerns relating to proposed rules to grant workers and their physicians access to the workers' medical and environmental records are considered and problems arising from a failure of corporations and physicians to express their suspicions and knowledge of occupational exposures that result in disease and death of workers are addressed. Recognition is given to the value of the observations of individuals and work groups that often are the initial source for discovering new workplace hazards. Increased federal expenditures for worker and employer safety education is anticipated. The author emphasizes OSHA's commitment to reduce occupational injuries and illnesses.
