Abstract
The presently existing barriers to the linking of the compensation system to the prevention of occupational disease as well as some promising recent efforts to link the state workers' compensation system to the prevention of occupational disease in New York State were discussed. The prospects for progress are yet uncertain. The commitment of legislators and government policy makers to this neglected area of workers' compensation will be sustained only through a vigorous coalition campaign in the years ahead. Topics considered in this report include the identification of causes and fashioning of remedies to avoid controversions and delay, occupational health and education training of workers funded by assessments on workers' compensation premiums, occupational disease diagnosis and prevention centers funded in part by workers' compensation reimbursement for occupational disease screenings, and integrating workers' compensation claims information into hazard surveillance and prevention efforts.
