The rapid spread of industrialisation means that for many developing countries economic performance is sometimes regarded as such a high priority that work‐related injuries, accidents and occupational diseases are tolerated. In such countries there will be little education and training relating to ergonomics or industrial health and safety. Well‐meaning external agencies often fail to target promotional activity and training at the appropriate level or within the local cultural framework. This paper discusses reasons for this, and suggests models for co‐operative development which can ensure that social development and improved working practices go hand in hand with economic development.
