An Observational Study of Classroom Health and Safety Training in Coal Mining.
NTIS: PB/83-210518 :65 pages
This study was concerned with the quality and effectiveness of existing classroom coal mine health and safety training programs. The study involved field data collection through pre- and posttesting of trainees, audiotaping class sessions, and administering short feedback forms with trainers and trainees at 14 sites in West Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. Results indicate that goals, methods, materials, and outcomes of existing training programs vary widely among trainers and sites. The report concludes that additional work by industry, labor, government, and academia is necessary to improve health and safety programs.
