Revisions and Update of Traffic Safety Manpower Training Program Development Guide, Final Report.
Hayes, Anne C.; And Others
The Center for Vocational and Technical Education conducted a project entitled "Revision and Update of Traffic Safety Manpower Training Program Development Guide." The purpose of the project was to develop a guide entitled HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY MANPOWER FUNCTIONS GUIDE that provided an organizational schema illustrating the functions essential to be performed and the interrelationship of these functions to carry out highway traffic safety programs. A review of literature and a bibliography are reported. The data collection procedure involved conducting on-site interviews with persons performing the identified traffic safety functions. Major conclusions reached regarding the project were: (1) Non-environmental traffic safety program objectives can be achieved through an adequate supply of competent manpower performing the identified functions. (2) Functions required in one functional area are similar or identical to functions within other areas, thus with minimum training, individuals could perform in several functional areas. (3) There is a variety of traffic safety related functions being performed in numerous agencies and organizations under a variety of job titles. (Author)
