Workplace Health and Safety across the Vocational/Technical Curriculum.
Ryan, Thomas; Hinkley, Carl
This document contains the outcomes of a pilot project to develop materials and methods of integrating occupational health and safety into the curriculum of the technologies at a technical college. Section I is a model of how to integrate health and safety into a vocational-technical curriculum. Based on the Outcomes-Based Guidelines developed by the Kansas State Board of Education, this section outlines a mechanism for curriculum development in the classroom. Four chapters cover the following subjects: the curriculum planning process, outcomes of integrated school health and safety programs, implementation of the health and safety education curriculum plan, and evaluation. Section II describes a pilot project for an automotive technology course. It presents curricula and lesson plans using the methods and materials identified in the model in Section I. They are: a course syllabus (description, specifications, topical outline, objectives, task list, and lesson plan) for shop safety and hand tools; suggested topics for a series of seminars on health and safety; and a welding lesson plan (objectives, task list, topical outline, and test). Section III provides guidance for establishing two laboratory-based activities: developing a health and safety program in the laboratory of the relevant technology and establishing a health and safety committee, both for the school and the laboratory. Section IV discusses how individuals learn and lists materials purchased for the project. Section V lists nine resources for automotive technology and contains an eight-item bibliography, surveys, and the Kansas guidelines. (YLB)
