Abstract
Policies on the occupational placement of women with reproductive capacity are discussed. The mutagenic, teratogenic, toxic, or carcinogenic properties of vinyl-chloride (75014), chloroprene (126998), glycidyl-ethers (2238075) and dibromochloropropane (96128) (DBCP) are reviewed. The author points out that the flood of females to the work force since 1976 has directed research priorities toward industrial hazards to the working female and the unborn child, while concern for the studies of male reproduction disorders have been inadequate. Since damage to the male has as much potential for injury to the unborn, it deserves more attention than it has been receiving.
