Loss Prevention through Safety Belt Use: A Handbook for Managers.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed to help managers address safety belt usage issues through a cost-effective and direct approach--establishing an employee safety belt program. The handbook offers a hands-on guide for conducting the program and provides for implementation at all levels. The handbook contains cost information, a program overview, policy and program development information, positive incentive concepts, accident reporting and recordkeeping information, education sessions, and public relations procedures and promotional ideas, including a coordinated graphics program. All materials are designed to be photocopied easily or reproduced with a sponsoring organization's logo. The resources section lists readily available materials for rent or loan. Suggestions for updating the loss-management system are also included so managers can track collisions and the extent of safety belt use before and after a specific campaign. An evaluation guide is suggested for program analysis. The handbook also can be used to conduct education sessions as part of community outreach programs. (KC)
