The Present Status and Requirements for Occupational Safety Research.
NIOSH 1972:203 pages
Report assessing the status of research in occupational safety in the U.S., including recommendations for the development of both a comprehensive and simplified priority rating system, applicable to specific research projects. The method was applied to a listing of approximately 50 such projects. Research areas included are development of criteria and standards, psychological, behavioral, motivational, engineering, equipment, and educational research. The results show that a balanced research program is needed in the areas of accident causative factors, accident investigations and statistical studies, general occupational safety research in psychology, motivation, education, training and management safety practices, and physical safety, particularly development of criteria and standards. In addition to physical safety research, criteria and standards are needed for environmental factors such as heat stress, lighting and visibility, and noise, training programs, overexertion, and fatigue, and labeling and marking of materials and equipment to prevent injuries.
