Abstract
The status of guidelines for occupational exposure affecting the male and female reproductive organs are reviewed and new guidelines for the safe handling of substances toxic to either sex or to offspring are proposed. The suggested guidelines include provisions for the survey of plant operations, employee advisement and training, and use of protective equipment. The author suggests that the Equal Opportunity Commission, OSHA, and the unions often are perplexed in their attempts to fulfill their stated goals for and obligations to the worker and concludes that the scientific community has much to learn about mutagens, teratogens, fetal or embryo toxins, and carcinogens despite rapidly developing testing methods. From the physician's standpoint, answers remain unclear since animal research data are difficult to extrapolate to humans.
