Abstract
A systems simulation model is developed to describe occupational accident and illness occurrence and the effectiveness of preventive measures, using a hypothetical manufacturing firm and expanding the model with empirical data and requisite assumptions to illustrate safety and health problems of a furniture manufacturing company. The model has emphasis on worker safety, the model behavior illustrating the negative feedback effects of expenditures for technical and behavioral factors countermeasures on accident occurrence, and the accidents being divided into disabling, nondisabling, and material only (noninjury) categories. Accident and illness costs are analyzed in terms of direct and long term losses, and parameters including the effects of number of inexperienced workers, length of work week, management attitude, and proficiency of company safety and health staff.
