This pamphlet sets out a plan of examination of the employees of industrial establishments for tuberculosis, the aims being the detection and suppression of sources of infec-tion in the working place, the detection of cases in the curable stages, the guidance of employees predisposed to tuberculosis and those reemployed after recovery, and the instruction of all employees in right living and in methods of prevention. This is an important feature of the work of the Chicago Tuberculosis Institute.
