Quote – Paul R. Hafer, National Association of Manufacturers, Testimony, Senate Subcommittee on Labor and Public Welfare.

Each employee must be motivated through training, education, by supervision to understand and to want to perform work safely. This desire must come from within—it cannot be imposed through the threat of civil or criminal sanctions against the employer. NAM believes that…the Secretary of Labor should not be given such unprecedented powers as proposed in this bill.

From the testimony of Paul R. Hafer, speaking for the National Association of Manufacturers, before the Senate Subcommittee on Labor and Public Welfare for the hearing “Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1968”.
