An Educational Program for Increased Safety Belt Use for a Small Organization 830475
A program to increase the use of safety belts in motor vehicles by employees of a small organization was developed by a staff committee. Using readily available materials, the employees were surveyed via a written questionaire, then checked for actual use at three different times. Overall use of safety belts increased from 20% to 55% among the employees. This was accomplished through an educational program and by providing proper feedback following each survey or spot check. Lack of funds prohibited the program from using money or gifts as incentive for increased safety belt use.
