Abstract
Four major steps in the development of an occupational injury research program are presented: identification of the machines, tools, equipment, or activities involved or associated with the greatest number of deaths and serious and non-serious injuries; development of a priority formula that would enable the agents or activities to be arranged in an order of priority based on both the frequency and severity of these occurrences, as well as the population at risk and the probability of successful results; development of data on the cause and effect relationships of these agents or activities as they relate to the occurrences, and isolation of factors involved in such relationship to develop standards of safety.
