Safety program practices of five manufacturing facilities with 1974 National Safety Council recognition for man hours worked without a disabling injury were surveyed. Three of the survey participants were chemical facilities, one was a textile facility, and one was a manufacturer of photoflash consumer products. Each facility responded to an extensive questionnaire, allowed interviews with company management and production workers, and hosted site visits by a team of safety professionals. Survey findings corroborate and extend those of two previous safety performance studies. These findings include the prevalence of such characteristics as a strong management commitment to safety, efficient hazard identification, engineering controls, job safety training, safety evaluation programs designed to anticipate and control hazards, an effective employee involvement program, and a safety program that is integrated into the larger management system and is designed to deal with safety as an intrinsic part of facility operation.
