This publication has been prepared as a guide for safety in the Agriculture Education, Skilled & Technical Sciences Education and Technology & Engineering Education labs. The development of a safety program will limit the risk of accidents for students and instructors.
The guide should be used by administrators, supervisors, and instructors to ensure that the laboratory-based activities and experiences of students will be as risk-free as possible.
The goal of the CareerSafe program is to teach younger workers how to stay safe in the workplace and begin to prepare these young men and women for a safe and prosperous future in their chosen career.
