Abstract
The instructor's resource guide for a course on maintenance as a means of hazard control is presented. The course was developed for the Division of Training and Manpower Development, NIOSH. The guide consists of five units. The first unit considers topics such as the roles of maintenance organization and management, functions of maintenance organization, and the relationship between poor maintenance and accidents. The second unit deals with the impact of accidents on facility operations. Unit 3 considers the elements of hazard control programs. Hazard identification and evaluation, decision making alternatives, establishing preventive and corrective measures, and the role of monitoring and corrective measures and inspection activities in hazard control are discussed. Unit 4 is subdivided into 6 sections that deal with occupational health, use and control of hazardous materials, fire protection and control, machine guarding, boilers and unfired pressurized vessels, and welding and cutting. The fifth unit summarizes hazard information. Decision flow for hazard corrections, displaying hazard information, building inspection, and preparing accident reports are discussed. The authors suggest that the instructor consider conducting a facility survey of his own and supplementing the material with 35 millimeter slides taken during the survey.
