Abstract
Several problems in occupational health programming were identified and discussed in an address to members of the American Medical Association. Problems cited included establishment size, credibility, failure to recognize diseases and injuries that may be related to occupation, failure of medical faculty and state licensing boards to include occupational medicine in curricula and examinations, the gap in problem recognition, the use of trade name products not labeled as to composition, the influx of women of childbearing age into the workforce, lack of knowledge on the potential hazard represented by specific chemical substances, the inadequate number of qualified safety and health professionals, the lack of a coordinated effort to link the education and training of health and safety professionals, and the coordination of the work of national organizations. The author indicates that many facilities lack expertise, time, manpower, and financial resources to plan an effective occupational safety and health program.
