INCENTIVES VS DEMANDS IN OFF-ROAD MACHINERY PRODUCT SAFETY
After 10 years of intense effort with product liability litigation and government regulations, this country has discovered that neither can be counted on to bring about a general reduction in personal injury accident rates. Government must set realistic goals and then establish an incentive climate of reward and penalty in which the path to these goals is left primarily to the ingenuity of the private sector. A large part of this climate can come from a new code which focuses the moral and legal obligation of safety warning communications on manufacturers and users alike.
