A strategic goal of the Prevention through Design (PtD) Plan for the National Initiative is for designers, engineers, machinery and equipment manufacturers, health and safety (H&S) professionals, business leaders, and workers to understand the PtD concept. Further, they are to apply these skills and this knowledge to the design and redesign of new and existing facilities, processes, equipment, tools, and organization of work. In accordance with the PtD Plan, this module has been developed for use by educators to disseminate the PtD concept and practice within the undergraduate engineering curricula.
