General Safety Manual for Vocational-Technical Education and Industrial Arts Programs. Bulletin No. 1674.
Dennis, Bill; Poston, David
This manual is designed to offer suggestions for teaching safety in Louisiana industrial arts and vocational education programs. The suggestions and information presented are intended for use in an ongoing safety program, not a short unit presented at the beginning of the school year. Following an introduction in unit 1, the material has been broken into eight additional units that address specific considerations necessary to safety in programs. Unit 2 discusses the responsibilities of various persons as they relate to safety, while unit 3 offers suggestions for the development of a safety program that meets the needs of the unique situation in every industrial arts-vocational education laboratory. In unit 4, the instructor's responsibility for teaching students the safe way to perform the various activities in the different industrial and vocational curriculum areas is addressed. Most commonly recommended safety regulations are outlined in unit 5, while unit 6 is devoted to procedures for making safety inspections designed to ascertain if the laboratory is as hazard-free as possible. Recommendations for making advanced preparations for emergencies are the focal point of unit 7. Finally, units 8 and 9 provide a system for recordkeeping and present sample tests for general safety understanding. Transparency masters are provided with many of the units. Appendixes contain signs and safety instructions for machines, a list of resources, and supplemental safety instruction packets for automotive, carpentry/woodworking, electricity/electronics, machine shop, small engines, and welding courses.
