This paper describes a three-year research study to develop and assess a model for web-based training in safety and health education. The study was a joint collaboration of the OSHA Training Institute Education Centers in Region III (the National Resource Center for OSHA Training at the National Labor College) and Region IV (the Georgia Institute of Technology), in cooperation with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Education and Information Division. The project involved the development of a web course in "Fundamentals of Confined Space Entry" and an extensive assessment of the course model by peer trainers and other worker-students. The end result of the study has been the development of a field-tested model for web-based safety and health education that relies heavily on animation.
