Bibliographic information 1989, No.4, p.124-127. Illus.
Abstract In a truck axle manufacturing plant in Kassel, Germany (Fed. Rep.), the frequency of serious accidents at the various production steps was determined. For each serious accident the unsafe human actions and their effects were identified. Between safety officers and managers a programme was worked out aiming at improving safety awareness among the workers. The success of the programme is illustrated by the reduction of accidents (per million workig hours) from 107 in 1983 to 60 in 1987.
