Some Scientific and Social Issues of Identifying Reproductive Hazards in the Workplace.
NIOSH 1980 Oct:3-6
A discussion on reproductive hazards and how to assess and protect against them is presented. Excluding women from jobs to prevent exposure to reproductive hazards is discussed along with the effects of exposure to hazards on the male reproductive system. Areas where research and OSHA policy should be developed are described. The author notes that OSHA's goal is to insure that no man or woman has to choose between a job and the right to have healthy children.
