Current Comment

The problem of the prevention of injury and disease among industrial workers is receiving more and more attention. The International Congress on Hygiene and Demography, to meet in Washington in September, will devote considerable time to the discussion of industrial and occupational hygiene. Among the subjects on which papers are to be read are the physiology and pathology of fatigue; the deleterious effect of unnecessary noise on workers; caisson disease; accidents and diseases occurring in electric generating works; occupational anthrax; safety devices for the prevention of accidents; the effects of temperature and humidity on fatigue; dust and its effects. Other important topics to be discussed by eminent men are sex and age problems in industrial hygiene; the employment of women and its relation to infant mortality; child labor, etc. These topics will be further elucidated in the exhibit to be held in connection with the congress. The attention given these questions by this important congress will no doubt give impetus to their further effective consideration by government authorities and will result in distinct improvement in the status of these economic conditions.
