Accidents Due to Fatigue – Strength Magazine – February, 1922

Accidents may happen to workers simply because they are overtired. Elimination of fatigue is therefore one of the most vital of safety measures, we are told by Frank B. and Lillian M. Gilbreth in a paper read before the National Safety Council in Boston and printed in The Iron Trade Re- view (Cleveland, O.). Shop welfare study of all kinds, including that of the elimination of eye-strain by proper. coloring, and that of ascertaining the easiest and fewest motions necessary to accomplish a given item of work, tends directly toward the reduction of fatigue and is hence an important measure of accident-prevention.
