Abstract
The scope and progress of a NIOSH contract evaluating the need for protective clothing in industry is reviewed. The contract includes 130 companies representing 27 occupational categories, employing a total of 94,000 workers, and located in six geographical regions. The hazards faced by these workers are listed and examples of unsafe practices in various industries are described. Procedures for evaluating accident data and the criteria used to establish safety clothing priorities are discussed. The author concludes that most workers are ignorant of the proper use of safety clothing and are not sufficiently aware of the actual hazards they are exposed to in the industrial environment.
