Statement Relating to Committee Work The services rendered by the volunteer members of the Board's committees are of the highest order and merit, many of the persons named being recognized as experts in their respective spheres of business. The time given by them to the various subjects considered and acted upon, if measured in dollars and cents, would run into many thousands of dollars. Indeed, if they were invited to serve for hire, it is doubtful whether the Board could have secured their co-operation. As it stands, they have been very keen to give of their expert knowledge without stint, in order that the rules of the Board might be the last word in sane and enlightened interpretation of the legislative intent with respect to the protection of factory workers' lives and limbs, without imposing unnecessary burdens upon the industries conducted within our State.

Attention is called to the following brief resume of the results thus far accomplished through the medium of these committees:


This committee has had under consideration some of the most difficult and technical subjects that the Board is required to act upon, namely: (1) Specifications to govern the installation of fire alarm signals in factories, and (2) Definitions of fire proof and fire resisting material for use in the construction, alteration and improvement of factory buildings and prescribing methods to govern such construction.

The committee, after careful thought and investigation, prepared tentative rules relating to both subjects; these were duly printed and distributed to owners of factories and of real estate devoted to manufacturing purposes. The Board thereupon gave formal hearings on such rules, as required by law. The records of the hearings were transcribed and the whole matter again considered by the committee which in turn presented its final conclusions to the Industrial Board and the rules, as contained in Bulle tins Nos. 5 and 7 of the Industrial Code, were finally adopted.

COMMITTEE ON SANITATION AND COMFORT This committee is charged with very important duties and has held many meetings at which two general subjects have been considered, namely: (1) Sanitation of living quarters in cannery labor camps; (2) General sanitation and comfort in factories.

The same procedure was followed as is recorded in the paragraphs relating to the Committee on Fire Hazards. Bulletin No. 3 contains the rules covering cannery labor camps. Rules on sanitation and comfort, applicable in factories generally, were printed in tentative form and hearings given in New York and Buffalo. These rules have been adopted and are now in course of preparation for the printer and will soon issue in bulletin form.


This committee is charged with the consideration of a highly technical subject and is now engaged in preparing the first draft of rules to cover ventilation, the removal of noxious or injurious gases and dust generated in the course of manufacture. Tentative rules covering the latter subject have been presented to the Indus trial Board and accepted and a hearing thereon will soon be given.


The elimination of industrial accidents is one of the burning questions of the day. It followed, therefore, that one of the important features of the Board's work would be the promulgation of rules relating to safeguards around machinery. This committee is made up largely of specialists in this line of work. The first subject taken up was elevators and hoistways. Rules were pro posed, public hearings given in New York, Binghamton and Rochester, and after further deliberations and recommendations by the committee, the Industrial Board adopted the rules contained in Bulletin No. 8.

General rules relating to the guarding of machinery are now being framed and final recommendations will soon be submitted to the Board.


Foundries present problems and conditions that are so different from the average manufacturing plant that they have re ceived special legislative consideration. Following out the policy
