TitleThe scientific basis of health and safety regulation
AuthorsSomers RL
Year1984
TypeJournal Article
AbstractBook Review of The Scientific Basis of Health and Safety Regulations by R.W. Crandall and L.B. Lave (eds) This book is essentially the product of a conference organized in late-1979 by the Brookings Institution but it is considerably better organized than most such proceedings. The cohesive quality of the document is a reflection, no doubt, of the careful planning which went into the conference itself. The conference focussed on five topics: passive restraint devices for automobiles (air bags, automatic belts and other devices which do not require active deployment by the car occupant), occupational exposure to cotton dust, sulphur oxide air pollution standards, saccharin as a food additive, and waterborne carcinogens. For each topic commentary was invited from a scientist, an economist and a regulator, yielding the present fifteen papers plus an introduction and summary by the editors and a few general comments by other conference participants.
