Abstract : Safety sampling is a proven scientific application of probability theory where observations are made at random intervals to determine the percent of safe and unsafe activities. PASS (Procedure for Army Safety Sampling) is presented as a supplement to present Army Materiel Command's safety programs. PASS can be used to measure the effectiveness of present safety programs, exemplify the need for new safety programs, give an appraisal of newly initiated safety programs and specify the location of unsafe personal acts and conditions. The uniqueness of PASS is that the raw data is collected in a form that is directly presentable to a computer. The computer then checks the data for errors, compiles it and prints out the selected summaries. The card listings for the Fortran computer programs that accomplish these tasks are included in the Appendices. (Author)
