Abstract
Most of America's businessmen, owners, operators, and franchise managers are energetic, hard working individuals who have saved and borrowed to get into business. They work hard but few of them have been exposed to the tested principles of accident prevention practiced by safety professionals, industrial hygienists, and other specialists in the field of loss control and human conservation. Most of them have never participated in standards development, much less realized that consensus standards existed long before the coming of OSHA. Relatively few small business men attend the meeting of their trade associations or participate in workshops or seminars. In many of these businesses young people find their first jobs, and are not trained satisfactorily in the area of job safety and health. Premature loss of the use of fingers and hands, or the beginning of chronic back trouble can be traced to incomplete job preparation by persons who do not teach safety because they themselves do not know how to be safe. Needs and possible methods of enacting change and improvement in the area of accident prevention are discussed. The possible use of television dramatic programming in the area of safety education is considered. (Contract No. 210-77-0135)
