Abstract

The health and safety of members of organizations is a long‐standing human resource issue of interest to those in the field of management. While its history is long and complicated, one part of that history – the role of Howard Pyle – is outlined here. The voluntary safety movement approach to this issue was supported strongly by Howard Pyle. A former radio station announcer who became Governor of the State of Arizona, Pyle was extremely active in the voluntary safety movement. In addition to becoming Governor of Arizona, he rose to be Deputy Assistant to the President of the United States, President of the National Safety Council, and first Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health. His contributions should not go unremembered.
