Abstract
Case studies were presented to illustrate the effect of safety and health on the success of business management. The studies were intended to be used to help business administration students understand the importance of safety and health in business. The cases selected address different areas of business management: production, operations, facility management, personnel, organization, product design, marketing, advertising, training, customer relations, capital budgeting, and small business management, among others. The case studies emphasized the financial implications of management decisions, and management responsibility in the prevention of illness and injury. Questions following each case were intended to provoke thought and lead to discussion of the cases in class. The 12 case studies covered a restaurant fire, an accident during removal of a telephone pole, three defective products, low morale in a print shop, a punch press accident, the decision whether to purchase a safety device for a new machine, a construction industry safety program, a truck driver involved in two accidents, a loss reduction program, and response of an industry to a health hazard.
