Title Increasing industrial safety practices and conditions through posted feedback
Bibliographic information Spring 1984, Vol.15, No.1, p.7-21. Illus. 20 ref.
Abstract Data were collected once a week on 24 practices and 7 conditions in a paper mill and data on injuries with and without lost time were also collected monthly. After posting feedback on safe and unsafe conditions for 6 months, more than half of the 17 divisions in the mill showed improvement. Safe practices increased after feedback was provided on them for 2 months. Injuries were cut in half. A cost benefit analysis of the programme is included.
