Resumen A well-documented history of the Factory Inspectorate, enforcing safety and hygiene regulations in industry in the United Kingdom since 1833. Particular attention is paid to: Leonard Horner (famous first inspector, 1833-1859), early triumphs of the Inspectorate (reduction in the working hours of children, dealing with silica and lead poisoning), problems faced today (asbestos, factory explosions, radio frequency risk associated with high-power radio transmitters), relations with other organisations (colonial governments, labour unions, the ILO). An extensive historical bibliography is attached separately.
