ABSTRACT

This volume was prepared by a group of industrial physicians and executives in charge of the health departments in various leading industries. The survey was undertaken primarily to determine the costs of such service, the number of persons engaged in it, and its efficiency. The book includes a description of a standard dispensary and the records of service in handling physical examinations, industrial accidents and illnesses. There is also a chapter on medical work in the small plant, on the keeping of records, and an analysis of the work of various medical departments. In 1915, an investigation covering more than 220,000 workers in 41 plants showed an average cost of $0.88 per person annually for medical service; in 1917 a survey covering almost 500,000 employees in 99 plants revealed an average cost of $2.50 per person; in 1921 the annual cost had risen to $4.43 per employee, and in 1925
