Occupational health should always be treated on par with worker safety.
The only difference between a miner injured on the job and one who is impaired from an occupational disease is that the former occurs very rapidly, while the latter occurs over a period of time.

- Applying appropriate new technologies, with an emphasis on exposure assessment and medical surveillance.
