Abstract

HERBERT K. ABRAMS im- G6 NDUSTRIAL hygiene is one of the most e) portant topics in preventive medicine and hy- as it deals the with the welfare and giene, health, X T il the human rights of the vast majority of the adult population. Industrial hygiene is a subject e? A*4~5 in which the medical, economic and sociologic and it a grasp, as aspects are closely interwoven, requires broad of the well as an intimate knowledge the conditions to avoid dangers and correct the injustices to which people who work are subjected. The questions of industrial hygiene strike at the very root of our social system; they deal with the relation of capital and and the relation of man to his fellow men. The labor, must conditions as he finds them and is employee largely accept frequently denied many advantages, even necessities. As the power of the employee is limited, he needs the protection of the state to correct the unreasonable demands which capital has ever of labor. Human for work have been exacted rights people hands. In recent there wrested from unwilling years, however, has been a brightening trend towards voluntary profit-sharing and cooperation in industry.
