NIOSH 1973 Dec:17-17
Potential applications of behavioral safety guidelines for industrial safety problems are investigated for the mobile home manufacturing industry, marine cargo handling, or longshoring industry, and underground bituminous coal mining. The report is conceived mainly as a theoretical exercise demonstrating potential application of behavioral safety guidelines to potential problems. In an actual industrial situation, implementation of the guidelines should be preceded by an organizational diagnosis. Topics examined include: criteria used for the selection of the target industries; description of the individual industries and some of the primary hazards encountered in each industry; description of the potential applications of the guidelines to possible problems in these industries.
