A new behavioral science approach to accident reduction is described. This approach represents an attempt to translate research and knowledge from 4 different areas of psychology into guidelines for controlling industrial accidents. Topics covered are: basis for the behavioral safety guidelines; orientation to the behavioral safety guidelines; organizational psychology; engineering psychology; training; and behavior modifications. The success or failure of this effort cannot be evaluated until programs based on the guidelines are implemented and assessed in a number of work situations.
