A synopsis of Pennsylvania Science Safety Data from the 2020 National Technology and Engineering Education Safety Survey
Factors That Have the Greatest Impact on Safety in Pennsylvania Technology & Engineering, CTE, and Makerspaces Courses
In this presentation Dr. Tyler Love, professor at Penn State – Harrisburg, and Dr. Ken Roy, discuss Pennsylvania’s results from the 2020 National Technology and Engineering Education Safety Survey that they conducted. Sections compare Pennsylvania to the national averages (e.g., having a written safety policy, Student Data Sheet availability, safety training upon initial hiring, annual training, instructional size area, proper ventilation). A discussion of the implications for school systems is also included in the presentation, as well as a set of recommendations.
