WORKERS THROUGH ILLNESS.
Death Toll of Vocational Accidents
and Diseases Also Heavy, Accord?
ing to Labor Bureau.
Three men have. *>e??i killed and
two others made blind In thia state
by varnishing with wood alcohol the
Interiors of . iooed. unventilated beer
vats. so*4t is reported by the state de?
partment of labor. The department ls
' entering on a campaign to prevent
occupational diseases and accidents.
. the majority of which, lt la said, are
due to ignorance and carelessness.
More than $336,000,000 was lost In
wagoo through lt,400,000 cases of sick?
ness among wage earners In the
t'nited Stales last year, according to
a booklet on industrial diseases now
being mailed by tbe department to the
14,000 physicians, hospitals and dis?
pensaries In the state.
Attention.ls called to the fact that
. for the purpose of preventing ao much
cf these discuses as are directly due
: to harmful and avoidable Industrial
processes, reports of certain diseases
of occupation aro now by law required
, to be filed with the department by
| physicians practicing In the state.
According to the booklet, "special
! uses of nerves and muscles bring
i about their definite occupational dis
i eases in the operation and control of
I machinery, and special strains result
from lack of variety in work, from
concentration and from tho haste in?
volved in competition, or speeding
up."
Paul Kennedy, secretary of the New
York Association for Lriibor Legisla?
tion, said:
Working men. women and children
are killed and disabled by thou
sands every year in the United B
by diseases because they are forced
to tbe use of harmful and avoidable
i methods of manufacture. A tithe ol
the Ingenuity we use in cheaper.ii. .
production, if applied to the problem
of making our Industries decentl;.
would save this needless and cru> I
sacrifice."?New York World.
