The second section of the handbook contains seven units for use on the secondary level. Units cover the following topics: in-school safety, safety in the home, recreational safety, natural disasters, science laboratory safety, driver education and traffic safety, and vocational education safety. All but the last unit consist of 1 to 13 projects for students to conduct, each listing objectives and activities.
