Occupational Safety and Health Practices: An Alarming Call to Action
Threeton, Mark D.; Evanoski, Danielle C.
Career and Technical Education Research, v39 n2 p119-136 Fall 2014
In an effort to provide additional insight on providing a secure teaching and learning environment within schools, this study sought to: (1) explore the safety and health practices within Career and Technical Education (CTE); and (2) identify the perceived obstacles which appear to hinder implementation of health and safety programs. While it might appear logical to assume that CTE programs consistently reflect acceptable safety standards to promote enhanced learning and skill development, the results suggested there is need for concern related to occupational safety and health practices within schools. Findings could be useful to CTE professionals; school administration and teacher educators interested in promoting enhanced occupational safety and health practices to safeguard life and limb.
