Department of Industrial Health and Saftey Promotion: Curriculum Plan.
The industrial health and safety promotion curriculum described in this paper is intended for an industrial manufacturing plant employing approximately 10,000 people. The paper begins by describing the plant and the workers for which the curriculum was designed. Next, a rationale for having a Department of Industrial Health and Safety program within the organization is presented, highlighting the importance of employees' understanding of their rights and responsibilities regarding their own health and safety. The department's goals are stated next (i.e., to encourage all levels of employees, from executive to assembly line, to reduce the number of health and safety hazards in the workplace; to develop health and safety programs; and to encourage employees to maintain healthful lifestyles), followed by a listing of specific objectives to be attained through employee participation in the curriculum. After identifying the groups for whom the curriculum was developed, the paper provides an annotated list of required and optional courses, which include "Safety on the Job,""Natural Disasters,""Handling Fires,""The Injured Employee,""Environmental Hazards,""The Purpose of Immunizations,""Nutrition and Good Health,""Exercising for Health,""Coping with Stress,""Substance Abuse," and "Parenting." Procedures for implementing the curriculum are outlined next, followed by information on evaluating the achievement of curricular objectives and curriculum revision. (EJV)
