This is the first of three volumes of a safety guide developed to assist Kansas administrators and teachers in organizing, evaluating, and maintaining safety programs. It provides information to help them identify, assess, and correct unsafe conditions relating to equipment and facilities and ensure a safe and healthy environment for themselves and students. The guide delineates areas to be considered in designing effective, ongoing safety awareness programs and provides technical information regarding the systematic development of those programs. Instruments for self-evaluation, reporting, and record keeping are included for assessment purposes. This volume addresses these topics: (1) program responsibility; (2) liability; (3) special education; (4) emergency action, medical first aid, and accident reporting; and (5) safety rules by curriculum areas. Curriculum areas covered include elementary education laboratory experiences; art education; home economics education; industrial education; language arts-drama; physical education, intramurals, and athletics; and science education.
