Abstract The emphasis is on Canadian material and experience since 1980 and relevant legal cases since 1970. It includes social, legal, medical, economic, scientific and political research and arguments which commonly arise. The issues addressed in the material include: hazards of women's jobs traditionally considered safe; reproductive hazards to men; protective and anti-discrimination legislation; exclusionary policies of employers; hazards associated with video display terminal (VDT) use; strategies for achieving healthier and safer workplaces. On some subjects, there is a divergence of opinion and/or approach. There are references to Canadian research in progress, important legal cases and pertinent legislation.
