Occupational Safety and Health in Vocational Education: A Guide for Administrators, Faculty, and Staff.
Godbey, Frank W.
This guide is intended to help administrators at schools having vocational education programs assess their occupational safety and health needs and establish a program to ensure a safer and more healthful work environment. It consists of three sections: (1) administrative guidelines, (2) technical-regulatory guidelines, and (3) a self-evaluation instrument for use in assessing total school environment. Covered in the first section are a general philosophy for occupational safety and health (OSH); forming objectives for, supporting, and organizing an OSH program; OSH maintenance; generating employee cooperation; emergency plans; and selecting and handling machine and hand tools. Items discussed in the second section include walking surfaces, ladders, stairs, guardrails, and scaffolds; such OSH concerns as noise, ventilation, harmful materials and processes; medical and first aid; fire protection; and machinery. A checklist for these items constitutes the twenty-four page self-evaluation instrument contained in the third section. A brief discussion of information sources and a bibliography conclude the guide. (MN)
