Statement of the Problem
Industry has long since accepted accident control In the factory aa a major administrative function of management. The growing importance of safety as an instructional obligation of the public schools is rapidly becoming a matter of general public interest. Notwithstanding the many injuries received on stairs, in science laboratories, on the playground, and on the athletic field, the public seems to be most aware of and sensitive to accidents in the shop. It is therefore of particular urgency that the school shop teacher be constantly concerned with and always alert to the prevention of accidents in the shop. Two important factors enter into the problem of safety. They are: (1) the safe condition of plant and equipment or environmental conditions, (2) proper instruction for safe use of all facilities or personal conditions.
It is the responsibility of each shop teacher to determine some means of developing safe conditions and a plan for the safe use of the facilities available in the shop.
Purpose of the Study
