This study describes the status of occupational health and safety in Tanzania and the challenges in provision of occupational health services in an expanding economy, with growth being driven by communications, transport, finance services, construction, mining, agriculture, and manufacturing. The workers exposed to hazards from these activities are found suffer from illness and injuries, but to not access adequate occupational health services, with services limited to a few enterprises that can afford it. Existing laws and regulations are reported by the authors to not cover the entire population and implementation to be weak.
