This Occupational Safety and Health film describes OSHA’s mission to reduce workplace disease, injury, and death, and informs workers and employers about their legal rights. The film visits a textile mill and a foundry, and tells the story of workers in Hopewell, Virginia, in the mid-1970s who were exposed to the now globally banned pesticide Kepone. The documentary ends with the story of a worker dying with cancer from prolonged exposure to benzine. This and two other 1980 Carter administration OSHA films were recalled in 1981 by the Reagan administration - but several labor unions and others retained copies and used them for training and education. close
