"It is evident from the title that the subject can be conveniently divided into two main sections, as follows: (a) Health hazards, which may be defined as those which cause industrial disease and sick ness and which, particularly in foundries, are caused mainly by atmospheric contaminants, such as dust and fumes. (b) Safety hazards, which for the purpose of this paper may be defined as hazards which are liable to cause an immediate accident resulting in one or more of the following types of injury, namely, burns, fractures, lacerations, abrasions or bruises, that is to say any bodily injury other than that caused by disease or sickness."
