Abstract
The development of safety education programs was discussed. Labor studies were defined as the study of work, workers, and their organizations. Of the 45 institutions with labor studies curricula, 19 had a safety and health program within such curricula, and one had a degree program in this area. The curriculum of the safety and health program at the Center for Labor Studies, Empire State College was described. In the Upper Division, students specialize in Occupational Safety or Occupational Hygiene. Seniors at the Center for Labor Studies carry out a research project on a topic in occupational safety and health. Students in the safety curriculum take a core of traditional safety courses plus courses in Labor Studies. A major goal of the Center for Labor Studies Occupational Safety and Health Program was more active, effective labor participation in the effort to achieve a safe and healthy workplace. According to the author, labor studies institutions should see their function as the assistance of workers in the development of their capabilities to protect themselves.
