QUOTE: There is much to be done in the field of safety on the job. In the last year of record the total of 44 on-the-job fatalities was the highest since we have kept reports. I believe that occupational safety supervision should be extended to all work places; that special attention be given the construction industry which is not now covered by a State Safety Service.
