Abstract
The contribution of hazard surveillance in the prevention of occupational diseases and injuries was reviewed. The goals of hazard surveillance were identified as recognition of hazards and effective control methods, determination of hazard magnitude and distribution of control technologies, determination of hazard exposure and control technology trends, directing intervention strategies to high risk occupations and industries, determination of the effectiveness of interventions, and disseminating information. The implementation of each of these goals was reviewed. Current and future directions in hazard surveillance including more fully exploring the role of toxicology, the use of new technologies, the development of improved hazard surveillance methods, the contribution of occupational psychosocial factors, and surveillance of hazards due to energy were explored.
