This publication is intended to help school superintendents, principals, supervisors and teachers do more effective work in safety education. It is a revision of early bulletins and incorporates new material as well as comments and suggestions from more than 50 members of the safety education profession. Administration responsibility is examined in detail, including organizing a safe school environment, aiding teachers with instruction materials, securing community cooperation, and providing and using a pupil accident reporting system. Teacher and supervisor responsibility are also discussed. Suggested experiences to help children learn safe habits are included: at school, at home, on the streets, on the school buses, and during recreation. In addition, activities are listed which would be most appropriate for the individual subject matter areas. (Author/SES)
