Created in 1911 after the fire. "This commission was "to investigate the conditions under which manufacturing is carried on."
Investigated factory conditions to improve safety, health, and well-being of workers.
During its first year, it inspected 1,836 industrial workplaces. Passed labor laws to reform factories and workplaces, who had long violated the rights of their workers in regards to health and safety. The “golden era” of reform was between 1911 and 1919.
