nounced safety inspections of the
nation's workplaces unless it first ob-
tains search warrants.
Voting 5-3, the justices struck down
as unconstitutional a portion of 1970 law
passed by Congress to provide gover-
nment protection of workers against on-
the-job safety hazards.
THE LAW HAD authorized inspec-
tors from the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration to make spot
checks of some six million industry and
business locations without proving to a
judge or magistrate that such a search

commercia buimdings as well as
private homes," Justice Byron White
wrote for the court.
"We are unconvinced that requiring
warrants to inspect will impose serious
burdens on the inspection system or the
courts, will prevent inspections
necessary to enforce the statute or will
make them less effective," White said.
IN ANOTHER decision yesterday,
the court ruled that juries in obscenity
cases can consider the sensibilities of
children only when there is evidence
that they were intended targets of the
allegedly obscene material.
The judges also voted 6 to 3 in a Mon-
tana case that states are free to charge
much higher hunting license fees for
out-of-state hunters.
The decision on workplace inspec-
tions, essentially, places a buffer - the
courts - between the OSHA, a division
of the Labor Department, and the
businesses it inspects.
Several business leaders said yester-
day that the decision outlawing warran-
tless inspections may be a mixed
blessing. -
"The good news is that OSHA is
limited in its inspections to the activity
required in the warrant in order to en-
ter a plant, thus ruling out fishing ex-
peditions," said Forrest Rettgers,
executive vice president of the National
Association of Manufacturers.
"THE BAD NEWS is that they need

Manufacturers Institute, had similar
reservations about the decision, saying,
"The Supreme Court ruling on OSHA
inspections is expected to have little ef-
fect because of the failure to require in-
spectors to show cause for making an
"Had the court issued a strict inter-
pretation, requiring inspections to be
based on employee complaints or
reports of accidents, the number of in-
spections would be substantially
reduced since less than five per cent of
the inspections to date have been con-
ducted on the basis of employees com-
NOW, IF an OSHA inspector is denied
access by a business owner, the inspec-
tor must obtain a court-ordered search
warrant before gaining access.
White's opinion acknowledged that
"the risk is that during the interval
between the inspector's initial request
to search a plant and his procuring a
warrant . . . violations . . . could be
corrected and thus escape the inspec-
tor's notice"
The court's decision does not
preclude OSHA inspectors from trying
to obtain a search warrant first -
without the business owner's
knowledge - to preserve the element of
