Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 76-115A, 1976 Apr; :1-46
The seventh and last in a series of reports on the Hospital Occupational Health Services Study which was conducted by NIOSH summarizes the data analysis and findings from all of the 6 published reports and includes a brief presentation of summary descriptors. The summary descriptors demonstrate that only 8 percent of the 3,686 hospitals surveyed meet all of the basic elements of an effective occupational safety and health program for hospital employees. An annotated bibliography lists selected articles on occupational safety and health programs for hospital workers and information on the physical, chemical and biological health hazards in hospitals. Also listed are professional sources for additional consultation and assistance, periodicals and journals of professional associations with interest in occupational health and safety, and a glossary of terms accepted by the occupational safety and health professionals.
