Abstract: At the Source is a bi-monthly newsletter, initiated in 1979 by the Health and Safety Training Center of the Ontario Federation of Labor (OFL). It is an attempt by the Center to provide a "forum for on-going education and communication in the area of occupational health", and is intended to keep its readers in touch with recent articles, issues and events concerning worker health and safety in Ontario and elsewhere. The name, At the Source - was chosen to reinforce the philosophy of the center that hazards should be controlled at the source - in the workplace.
Recent issues include a "News in Brief" section of recent events; summary charts on the health hazards of office work and retail food outlet work; summary articles on environmental asbestos; Ontario new occupational health and safety legislation and a review of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) new policy on cancer causing substances.
