Program Administrators, coordinators, and teachers know that their schools should comply with Federal or State Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. However, the task may seem overwhelming! This Safety Checklist Program can help these leaders bring their schools into compliance even when they have little safety and health experience, a busy schedule, and many unanswered questions. Many States mandate that career-technical schools and institutions have safety and health programs in place, conduct hazard analyses for each career-technical program, do safety inspections and maintenance, and comply with safety and health and environmental regulations. In one easy-to-read source, the Safety Checklist Program provides information needed by schools to maintain safe classrooms, shops, and labs for teachers and students in career-technical education. This information can also be used by colleges and universities with occupational safety and health programs. The key to preventing injury and illness of school employees and students, and protecting the environment, is to establish a safety and health and environmental safety program.
