# 5 OSHA – A MEANS TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF AMERICANS
FALL 1974 (PART I)
This topic and publication fell under the keen and watchful eyes of Frank Goldsmith whose knowledge of the subject of occupational safety and health is wide and deep.
The Quarterly states it is the first of two publications related to OSHA. In fact it was the beginning of a long dialogue that led to the formation of CCAHS’s Labor Safety and Health Institute (LSHI) to be led by Frank.
OSHA is defined by law and citations to the applicable base laws are included as well as specific key passages. Worker safety and health is a world-wide issue and the World Health Organization definition is given also.
OSHA’s background in America and basics about how the law was intended to work are described as well as the response of employers. The applicability of OSHA in New York City is detailed along with OSHA’s accomplishments. The copy argues that to be effective and improve worker safety and health require union participation is necessary.
