Abstract
The program, Project Shape, initiated by NIOSH in 1980 for Safety and Health Awareness designed for Preventative Engineering to encourage emphasis on occupational safety and health issues in technical engineering curricula, were reviewed. NIOSH started several projects intended to promote the introduction of occupational safety and health into engineering curricula at Purdue University, Ohio State University, Tufts University and Georgia Institute of Technology. Evaluation reports based on faculty interviews and student response were illustrative of the good reception of the courses. NIOSH held technical meetings and interacted with engineering societies to develop new approaches to occupational safety and health programs in engineering schools. NIOSH contracted with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) to develop data bases on safety and health education in accredited engineering programs which were to be used to evaluate current conditions and determine the need for improving curricula through the accreditation process. Other NIOSH activities in this particular field included the establishment of a network for engineering faculty members who were particularly interested in occupational safety and health, and the issuance of a research grant dedicated primarily to the development of new engineering control systems for physical hazards, chemical hazards and new technologies.
