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. Most important, it focuses on primary prevention (in the form of CPPP) and how this model benefits both the environment and the worker. In addition, it provides useful feedback on what motivates companies to approach environmental and work environment compliance issues as a single concern.
