Professional Preparation for Careers in Safety.
Della-Giustina, Daniel
There has been a long existing need for individuals with extensive training and concentration in safety studies. The foundation areas upon which a curriculum for training safety practitioners is based should include: (1) trends in accident prevention and control; (2) safety analysis of human and machine tasks; (3) hazard identification and control countermeasures; (4) human and environmental safety factors; (5) safety legislation (standards and compliance); (6) history, philosophy, and psychology of safety; (7) legal and liability aspects of safety; (8) disaster and emergency preparedness; (9) fire protection and prevention; and (10) safety research, measurement, and evaluation. Safety professionals' roles are becoming increasingly more important, and career opportunities are available for them in the government, in business, in educational institutions, and in professional organizations.
