Abstract
Manpower requirements in occupational safety and health as surveyed by the NIOSH Division of Training and Manpower Development in 1974 are discussed. Approximately 3,300 industries were surveyed. They reported a total of 84,000 individuals employed more than 50 percent of their time in occupational safety and health activities. At least 100 employers responded that they would immediately hire a physician if one was available. There is an estimated need for 100 new physicians a year between 1977 and 1980, 60 to 70 a year between 1981 and 1985, and 50 a year between 1986 and 1990. Currently, six schools offer 24 residency positions in occupational medicine, according to the 1977-78 American Medical Association Directory of Accredited Residencies. The NIOSH Educational Resource Center (ERC) concept is described as a base resource for training and education in occupational safety and health.
