A1 Construction Site Modeling for Construction Safety Education, Nick Nichols

This modeling project involves not only the construction of a three dimensional model, but would also entail the analysis of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Safety Standards and accident case study research applicable to the work undertaken. This model approach to teaching about “construction safety concepts” has been effectively utilized in the Construction Safety course (SFTY 3553) offered in the Department of Occupational Safety and Health at Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SE) .

A2 Modular Implementation Success in Nano-Safety: The Impact of Engineering and Technology Majors, Dominick E. Fazarro, Jitendra Tate and Walt Trybula

Professors at two four-year universities in the southwest two four-year universities in the southwest took a proactive approach to create a proposal to the Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education Division of The National Science Foundation (NSF) to educate students so that they will have the knowledge to make wiser and more informed decisions when selecting nanomaterials in products, providing appropriate workplace safety, and considering environmental implications. The grant was funded for two years.

A3 Engaging OSH&E Students in Research through a Research and Development Course, Lu Yuan

This paper presented a commonly used process to engage students in research through a Research and Development course. Illustrated by two examples of student research projects, the pros and cons of this unique way to recruit undergraduate students for research were discussed. Compared to the industrial internship, the Research and Development seemed to have an equally valuable influence on student outcome attainment as well as job placement, although more analysis is warranted to test if there is any statistical difference.

A4 The Use of a Hybrid Delivery Methodology to Promote Active Learning in Safety Courses, David Freiwald and Michael O’Toole

The transition of Introduction to Aerospace Safety, from a conventional to a hybrid delivery methodology can be considered to be successful. Based upon the qualitative data obtained from learning outcomes, weekly reading comprehension assessments, and the perceptions of the students themselves a marked improvement was seen across groups in both scholarship and satisfaction. Student reviews of the hybrid methodology display a high degree of satisfaction with the revised course – despite the fact that many were unaware of a difference in delivery methodology.

Key Competencies Preparing Graduates for the Global Workplace, Joseph M. Losko and Tracey L. Cekada

•Classroom curriculum for OSH students continues to evolve. The profession is more dynamic than ever and the global workplace presents emerging challenges. •This article examines the competencies that educators and OSH professionals deem necessary for global safety practice. •These competencies include hard (technical) and soft (nontechnical) categories. The ability to utilize and acquire communication skills, and to understand culture and customs specific to the area of practice were identified as key. Soft competencies were identified as vital to implementing and facilitating the technical aspects of OSH as well.

Argon Related Fatigue, Neil McManus and Assed N. Haddad

Fatigue is a nonspecific condition that affects people periodically in life (CCOHS, 2014; Nordqvist, 2014). People with fatigue often express lack of energy, discomfort, feeling unwell or sleepy, loss of motivation, poor concentration, and difficulty in making decisions and performing daily tasks. Expression of fatigue in individuals and collectively in groups raises obvious concerns about safe performance of work (CCOHS, 2014; Hallowell, 2010).

SH&E Industry 2015 Salary Survey, Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP)

The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals; AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
