This report assesses agricultural health and hygiene from the aspects of demography, legislation, administration, research, and teaching - with special references to the position in Canada. It followed a canvass of the following Canadian sources - Federal Ministries of Health, Labor and Agriculture, Provincial Health and Agriculture Ministries, Attorneys General of the Provinces, Workmen's Compensation Boards, University Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Agriculture, the Canadian Safety Council, and Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
The Canadian literature on the subject has been reviewed. Health and hygiene activities are enmeshed with accident prevention (safety) in Canada so a consistent separation of the two fields could not be made.
