The 'Right-to-Know' Movement
American Journal of Public Health. 1983 Nov; 73(11): 1302.
Bingham, former Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health in the U.S. Department of Labor, comments on the progress of the "right-to-know" movement in worker health since 1980. Failure on the part of the Reagan administration to move quickly forward with a proposal for a hazard identification standard, known as "Right-to-Know, Part II," has been offset by action at the state and local levels. As of August 1983, 10 states had passed right-to-know laws, with legislation pending in others. Bingham attributes this success to several factors and remarks on the effectiveness of local coalitions in solving a national health problem. (KIE abstract)
