Integrating Occupational Health and Safety into TAFE Courses: Curriculum Topics.
Hall, Bob; Mageean, Pauline
This guide is designed to help technical and further education (TAFE) curriculum writers in Australia integrate safety education into vocational education courses. It provides a general overview of occupational health and safety from the perspective of TAFE trade training and a brief summary of the major health and safety issues that might be encountered by members of the Australian work force who have been trained through TAFE. The information presented in this publication is in two sections: a general or core module and several specific workplace topics. The general or core module is intended to stand alone as a unit to be taken by every student at the beginning of the course. The noncore, specific workplace topics are intended to be integrated throughout the course. The noncore topics are accompanied by extensive lists of references to enable the teacher to relate the subject area to a specific trade. Topics covered include chemical hazards, noise, vibration, heat and cold, overuse injuries, manual handling, lighting, radiation, confined spaces, electrical safety, biological agents, machinery hazards, the home, vehicle and road safety, personal protective equipment, and occupational first aid. Appendices include industry-specific hazards, a safety and hazard audit, a glossary, curriculum development worksheets, and lists of 35 organizations and 3 print resources. (KC)
