File Synopsis: This study focuses on aspects of the relationship between Cleaner Production-Pollution Prevention and worker health and safety. It evaluates the effects of pollution prevention intervention programs (toxics use reduction or TUR) on worker health and safety at three Massachusetts printed wire board manufacturing facilities.
