Summary or Abstract : Sharply diverging views on the origins of social reforms have characterized much of the discussion, both within public debate and in the scholarly literature which addresses this subject. To assess how adequately existing approaches account for the origins of social reforms three studies of reform in occupational environmental conditions in the Ontario mining industry were developed. While two of the studies examined processes of reform in particular mining companies these processes also contributed to the passing of a major piece of legislation, the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1978--the subject of the third study--whose provisions regulated not only mining but almost all workplaces in Ontario. To facilitate a systematic analysis of these processes of reform a model was constructed whose constituent elements were induced, in large measure, from Marx's historical analysis of the opposition of the English textile workers, between 1770 and 1878, to the extension of the working day and to insanitary conditions in the workplace. This model, in examining a particular social process, showed in what way, various agents contributed to the passing of a series of Factory Acts, between 1770 and 1878, in Britain. A review of some recent scholarly literature on first, reforms affecting environmental conditions in the workplace and secondly, on reforms in the distribution of political and social rights also was undertaken. This enabled us to modify the original model, derived from Marx's historical analysis, to bring its constituent elements into harmony with contemporary scholarship and also to provide a much more comprehensive model of the process of reform. By comparing the actions of the various agents in the comprehensive model with similar ones in the three studies it was possible to chart the terrain within the model which was in accord with evidence in the studies. This, in turn, allowed us to advance some generalizations about the contributions of the various agents to certain processes of social reform and to discuss a number of themes emerging from these generalizations..
