This paper is an explanatory attempt to verify some variables that seems to be associated with occupational safety and accident reduction in industry. The variables of interest are: age, work experience, hours of work and accident rate. The data was an evaluation of the accident record of a large manufacturing organization. A total of 580 accidents were recorded during the two-year period examined with a total of 465 employees involved. Subjects were assigned to one to three age categories and one of three-work experience categories respectively. Accident rate did not differ significantly among the three age and work-experience categories using analysis of variance (ANOVA).
