Behavioral toxicology: early detection of occupational hazards. Xintaras C, Johnson BL, De Groot I, eds. Washington, DC: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, (NIOSH) 74-126, 1974 Jan; :376-399
Report is made of an initial investigation by NIOSH of safety and accident experience of workers and companies from three perspectives: an industrial engineering oriented analysis of the work, a psychological evaluation of characteristics of the personality, attitude and adjustment of the workers, and the measurement and analysis of certain behavioral or functional performance capacities that may differentiate between construction workers with high and low accident experience histories.
