Hazardous Communication and Tools for Quality: Basic Statistics. Responsive Text. Educational Materials for the Workplace.
Vermont Inst. for Self-Reliance, Rutland.
This guide provides a description of Responsive Text (RT), a method for presenting job-relevant information within a computer-based support system. A summary of what RT is and why it is important is provided first. The first section of the guide provides a brief overview of what research tells about the reading process and how the general design of RT conforms to current theoretical views of reading. This review of reading theory provides a framework for a detailed description of RT design and operation. The balance of the document describes the RT lessons, including the following: the four-lesson sequence, Working with Hazardous Materials, which covers the major hazardous materials topics required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration; the three modules in Tools for Quality that introduce some skills and techniques used in most Total Quality Management programs; the three modules in the Communications sequence; the two-module sequence on Bloodborne Pathogens; and the lesson on Creative Problem Solving.
