Abstract
Recent awareness of safety issues was discussed as it relates to the agricultural education profession. A study was made of safety compliance rates of selected secondary vocational education laboratories within two urban counties in Arizona. Compliance concerns were addressed for ten categories in 21 schools. Walking/working surface items such as safety lanes, nonskid surfaces, laboratory appearance neat and orderly were in generally good compliance with an overall score of 76%. Means of egress demonstrated a lower overall score of 54%. In the medical and first aid category, overall compliance was 30%. The overall compliance for personal protective equipment was 67%. For tools, there was 73% compliance with subscale items. There was 93% compliance in the environmental control category, which included evaluation of laboratory ventilation, illumination, noise levels, washing and clean up, safety stands, and guarding. The trend was for schools which scored poorly in one category to be generally weak in most areas. The author concludes that additional effort must be placed on compliance with basic standards of safety in vocational education laboratories.
