The purpose of this research is to test the usefulness of the Traditional Epidemiological Theory of disease causation in modeling the effects of work environment characteristics on occupational injury and illness rates. More specifically, the research will use the agent, host, and environment constructs of the Traditional Epidemiological Model to examine the effects of the following six employer health and safety practices on occupational injury and illness rates: (1) the formation of a company labor union, (2) the utilization of industrial hygiene services within the past twelve months, (3) the implementation of a formal safety training program for employees, (4) the hiring of a full-time, on-site safety professional, (5) the hiring of a full-time, on-site occupational health professional, and (6) the number of years of establishment operation. The National Occupational Exposure Survey (NOES), conducted by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in 1981-1983, will be the data set used to conduct this research study.
