Abstract
Present engineering curricula generally include little instruction in the health and safety aspects of the profession, even though these issues are major driving forces for business decisions, especially within the chemical processing industries. To correct this problem in our own curriculum and to make our improvements transferable to other departments, we are developing a series of videotapes of speakers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Copies of these tapes are available at cost. We have also compiled a list of resource materials that will be useful to others who wish to include safety and health components into their courses.
