Abstract
Overview of the industrial accident problem in the United States. Statistics of incidence rate are presented to indicate the magnitude of the problem. According to the National Safety Council, about 1 death occurs every 37 minutes and 1 injury every 13 seconds, from industrial accidents. Data are given for recordable occupational injury and illness incidence rates for target industries in 1972 and 1973; and for body parts more frequently injured, with a list of equipment involved in the injuries. The need for finding out how far human factors, environmental conditions and poor equipment design are responsible for the accidents is emphasized.
