NIOSH 1978 Oct; :1-216
An overview of occupational safety and health as part of a series of modules being developed and provided by the NIOSH Division of Training and Manpower Development is presented. The modules are designed to be used by educators to provide academic education as well as continuing education and single subject outreach courses. The module consists of three units that are subdivided into lessons. Each lesson contains seven major components: terminal and enabling objectives, lesson requirements, lesson outline, demonstration outline, problems and practice exercises, solutions to the problems and exercises, and visuals. Unit 1 covers the historical development of occupational safety and health and contains two lessons dealing with the development of interest in worker safety and health and the development of legislation and standards. Unit 2 is concerned with the Occupational Safety and Health Act and contains three lessons concerned with the development and provisions of the Act, requirements of the Act, and enforcement of the Act. The third module contains three lessons giving an overview of industrial safety and industrial hygiene, and discusses the role of the physician, nurse, or environmental engineer in occupational safety and health activities in a typical organization.
