Abstract
Principles are not unique. Any labor intensive industry. Industries which include frequent contact with biologically active inputs and outputs, heavy equipment, etc. Industries with a diverse worker population. Offer your expertise. Anyone who delivers goods, services, and information must be part of the target. Know your community. National Safety Council data only includes people working and excludes children below age 16 (even when working). Age, age-based limitations of kids, stress and fatigue, gender differences, migrant and immigrant workers.
