The role of OSHA violations in serious workplace accidents
California accident investigations for 1976 show that violations of the OSHA safety standards were a contributing factor in 13-19% of 645 deaths reported. A panel of safety engineers judged that 50% of these violations could have been detected if an inspector had visited the day before the accident. Potential gains from stronger enforcement of current standards are limited but not insignificant. The likelihood that a violation contributed to a serious accident varied among accident types, industries and size classes of plants. Better targeting of inspections and accident investigations, more intelligent assessment of which violations should be penalised most heavily, and the provision of information to employers and workers about which violations are most consequential, are recommended.

Perspectives in the management of carcinogenic risk in Norway
There is currently no official policy on the management of carcinogenic risks in Norway. Major principles are laid down in the Working Environment Act and the Product Control Act. The Directorate of Labour Inspection publishes a list of acceptable limits for airborne contaminants, in which carcinogens are specifically identified. In a proposed classification, Class I substances include documented carcinogens and Class II suspected carcinogens. An Advisory Committee for Work with Carcinogenic Substances has been set up; its terms of reference and activities are briefly described. The Cancer Registry provides for epidemiological studies, case reference studies and linking of past and present workers in specific factories with cancer incidence.
