Abstract
The importance of prevention in the ongoing international effort to reduce the incidence of occupationally induced diseases was explored. The urgency of prevention of occupational exposures was illustrated using occupational lead (7439921) exposure in the United States as an example. The enormity of this problem was demonstrated with the recognition of a population of over 60,000 workers in bridge, tunnel and elevated highway construction, and wrecking and demolition, and their family members, at risk for such exposure. The role of the NIOSH in worker protection was described. Four means of prevention advocated by the NIOSH, applied research, development and dissemination of scientific information, education and training, and exercising national scientific leadership, were described. Four specific actions suggested by the author to effectively address occupational disease and injury prevention were presented.
