Abstract
Safety procedures at the University of Minnesota were described and discussed. One of the early attempts to provide safety information to the staff consisted of a safety bulletin published by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety. These bulletins formed an integral part of the total awareness that employees should develop toward safety both on and off the job. In an effort to improve the safety awareness of the population, an inventory was made to identify existing and potential problems. Accident forms were reviewed and a series of planned meetings were held with employees at which they were surveyed relative to potential topics in safety. The development of a healthy attitude toward safety was viewed as extremely important. Understanding that people learn through hands on experiences produced efforts to have the employees participating actively in safety training exercises. Instructors who were viewed as experts in various topic areas pertaining to safety were sought to teach specific safety meetings. This particular approach has been well received by the staff at the university and has been expanded upon for the future.
