In 1930 he was safety engineer of the American Standards Association and directed the projects of industry, government and labor that were guided by the association in the establishment of safety standards.
These activities led ultimately to the formation of more than 150 voluntary national safety standards and codes for the guidance of state and municipal governments as well as industrial organizations and insurance companies.
