How To Tailor Off-the-Shelf Training Materials. [MSHA Guide].
West Virginia Univ., Morgantown.
This booklet was developed to give trainers the information required to convert general material into a specific course on mine safety. Such a course would cover specific company procedures, conditions and hazards at the mine, accident avoidance information, and emergency procedures. The booklet contains seven sections and two appendices. Following the first section, which explains the purpose of the booklet, the guide provides a rationale for tailoring materials to a specific audience and suggests preliminary steps for tailoring materials. The tailoring process is explored in the fourth section, which is illustrated with a flowchart. Section V presents a step-by-step process for tailoring the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Part 48 General Training Material module. It is followed by a section on keeping up to date and a one-page summary. Appendixes include information on constructing a questionnaire and checklists for tailoring materials. (KC)
