This manual is designed to involve both teachers and students in planning and controlling a safety system for technology education classrooms. The safety program involves students in the design and maintenance of the system by including them in the analysis of the classroom environment, job safety analysis, safety inspection, and machine safety design. The guide is organized in 3 sections comprising 12 units and an appendix. The first section, safety system design, focuses on the following topics: environmental factors; human factors; tools and equipment; processes; materials; outside influences; and feedback. The second section presents example applications of the safety system in communication, manufacturing, transportation, construction, and research and development. The appendix includes student activity forms, safety report forms, emergency action procedures, and suggested organizational resources. (KC)
