A report of the Subcommittee on Occupational Health gives an overview of its current program and projected goals. Basic objectives include: recognition of influences and risks associated with occupations; evaluation of their effect on human health and efficiency; development of preventive measures; and effective application of knowledge so gained to industrial practice. Three types of services are currently offered on a limited basis: technical information and advice; problem-solving teams; and assistance to states in building up their own occupational health programs.
