Abstract
At a national symposium in May of 1985 officials from NIOSH met with over 450 symposium participants including representatives from the educational fields, management, organized labor, professional associations, and voluntary organizations to propose strategies for dealing five occupational conditions. These conditions included occupational lung diseases, musculoskeletal injuries, occupational cancers, severe occupational traumatic injuries, and occupational cardiovascular diseases. Descriptions of the conditions and diseases were offered. Surveillance of hazardous agents at the worksite, possibilities of substituting less hazardous materials on the job, available control technologies, incentives and regulations, research studies, hazard detection, disease diagnosis, personal protective equipment, environmental monitoring, biological monitoring, standard setting, medical screening, therapeutic health care and rehabilitation, exposure surveillance, compliance activities, education of workers and managers, epidemiology, and psychosocial factors were discussed. Revised strategies were summarized.
