Hand Activity Level Application (HAL)

September 9, 2008

I finished it!  I will be sending the HAL application for windows.  Copy both files to your computer.  The VB40032.dll is a library necessary for the HAL app to run.   The instructions are with the app. If you have questions, please send an email. We will discuss in class.

Safety 4900, Week 2.

June 7, 2008

Hi Folks,

Sorry I’m late in getting in on the webpage.  Here are the class slides.  Please write if you have any questions.  The various accidents we watched were from and other sites.   I can send them if you’d like to watch them.  As I mentioned,  only 1 paper is required – two was too much.  The paper is one accident/event.  For example, you could write on Bhopal.   Please include where you believe it falls on the matrix –  Heirarchal, egalatarian, etc.  Also, please include if it was human error and the type.

Next class meeting, please bring your safety behavior model.  The examples (types) in chapter 6 are a start, but please build your own.  My goal is to review some in class and to discuss them.  We may place a model or two on the board and talk thru them as a team.  I’ll start with mine and you guys can critique it.

Lastly,  the final – I’m working on it now and I’m about half-way through.  It will be a take home.  Last class meeting, please bring your paper and the behavior model.  I’ll have the final posted.  If for some reason you can’t access them, please let me know. I’ll email them to you.  The final is due by 18 July 08 so that I can send it final grades.    Sound ok?

Possible Discussion Topic

Here is a possible discussion topic for the 4th week!

Teen Summer Job Safety!!!!

Almost Done!

June 24, 2007

Here it is,  the last class coming up.  I wanted to pass on how much I’ve enjoyed teaching this class.  I’ve learned a great deal from all of you.  I appreciate all your feedback.  My goal is to improve the course for the next time.  

This last class, we will have a short review and discussion.  I want to ensure that we’re covered and refreshed the material.  I’ll ask each of you to complete a questionnaire on the course.   I value each of your comments.   I’ll have the final examination posted very shortly.  Please read it carefully, answer the questions as in the instructions.  Don’t ‘fluff’ the answers.  If possible,  please turn in the test by the 13/14 July and no later than the following Wednesday – the 18th.  I need time to grade them and provide them to UCM.   Thanks!

So,  I know that we couldn’t cover all aspects of Industrial Hygiene.  There are just too many to compress into a single class.  But,  the door is wide open for your exploration.  There’s no reason you couldn’t go on an adventure into IH yourself.    Be the Mongoose!

See you on the 13th.
