Recognition of accident potential in the work place. Physical environmental factors - 511. Student workbook.
Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1981 Dec; :1-306
The student workbook for a course on recognition of accident potential in the work environment due to physical and environmental factors is presented. The workbook accompanies a course developed by the American Society of Engineers for the Division of Training and Manpower, NIOSH. The course is intended to present information on accident potential recognition to students who are new to the field of occupational safety (having less than 1 year experience) and to enable them to recognize the majority of potential accident causing situations that may exist in their place of employment. The emphasis of the course is on learning to recognize groupings or categories that would permit future recognition of new hazards rather than specific processes, materials, or pieces of equipment. The workbook consists of four sections in which recognition of potential hazards associated with sites and structures, operating machines and equipment, materials, and energy are examined.
