Industrial safety has become a paramount concern in the high technological society of today. Producing products faster, larger, and by ever increasing sophistication has lead to a need to make employees more aware of the hazards associated with their jobs. To these ends safety programs have evolved with the intent of instilling an attitude of safety awareness in all employees. This report represents one such program. In it one will find guidance for composing an effective part-time safety program. The safety continuity folder currently being used at Weyerhaeuser Company in Manitowoc, Wisconsin is included in the Appendix.
