Abstract
A generic model for the analysis of costs and benefits of Occupational Health Programs is developed, and data from Kaiser Steel Corporation's Fontana Works used to test the validity of the model. A cost accounting system is developed for the medical facility which permits categorizing all of the costs for the resources for the facility on an annual basis. The actual dollar and nondollar, or intangible, benefits and their effectiveness are difficult to determine because the model needs more precise data. An employee attitude survey, planned to help identify some of the intangible benefits is not implemented because labor negotiations are incomplete.
