Allis-Chalmers advises women workers on health and safety, 1942

Women Safe at Work at Allis-Chalmers


Hundreds of women went to work at Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company during the war.

Allis-Chalmers created this booklet for women that advised on proper clothing, first aid, exercise, diet, and workplace safety.
