Abstract The vision of 'Small Business Safety Officer' is to provide a cost-savings portal for small businesses to integrate pollution prevention, cheaper and safer process alternatives and worker health and safety compliance into their business process. The specific goal of the Phase I program was to develop and evaluate a prototype containing a web-based expert-assisted system to generate an Intranet site to perform the following functions: determine applicable OSHA regulations; generate chemical hygiene and other safety plans; formulate policies such as chemical purchase, storage and disposal; perform medical recordkeeping; develop an accident and event reporting archive; create and operate a safety committee and emergency response team; provide ergonomics advice; generate forms; and host several advisor capabilities to provider safer and cheaper process alternatives. The prototype was to also create a general access safety web page to provide all employees with important safety information.
