Integrating Occupational Safety and Health into TAFE Courses: Policy Guidelines.
Hill, Graham L.; Mageean, Pauline
Intended to help administrators, curriculum developers, and teachers integrate occupational health and safety into Australian vocational courses on bricklaying, metal fabrication, and horticulture, this document suggests specific policies and provides further amplification concerning three general policies for that integration. The three general policies are: (1) the program for technical and further education (TAFE) curricula for all vocational courses include relevant occupational health and safety issues, integrated at appropriate stages of the educational program; (2) all vocational courses submitted for accreditation or reaccreditation include relevant occupational health and safety issues; and (3) staff development programs in the teaching of occupational health and safety be provided. Following an introduction describing the project, the specific policies are elaborated. Three appendices contain a graphic portrayal of the ways in which occupational health and safety training material can be integrated into TAFE courses and a list of objectives, target groups, and goals concerning national training and education policy and strategy for occupational health and safety.
