The Development of a Vocational Safety Guide for Missouri's Practitioners. Final Report.
Dyrenfurth, Michael; Linhardt, Richard
A project was conducted to develop a comprehensive vocational education safety guide for local administrators and teachers. To generate the guide, the following steps were completed: (1) a review of key related research, literature, and federal and state legislation, including vocational safety guides from 18 states; reference material from the National Safety Council; relevant safety education materials identified through an ERIC search; and various state, local, and national agencies; (2) formation of an advisory committee composed of local administrators, Missouri State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education supervisors, representatives from the Occupational Safety, and University of Missouri-Columbia personnel; (3) identification of major areas of safety concerns common to all vocational education programs; (4) development of guidelines specific to each area; and (5) verification of all guidelines by Missouri educational leaders. Major sections of the guide included Missouri-specific laws, levels of responsibility, liability, safety program recommendations, facilities and equipment, personal protective equipment, and vocational special needs students. In addition, a reference listing of textbooks, articles, and state and national resource agencies was compiled as part of the guide. (The project needs assessment is included in the report.) (MN)
