New Resource for Safety and Health Educators or Trainers

The course I am currently enrolled in for my EdD in Health Professions from A.T. Still University is EDUC 7500: Technology and Educational Transformation. As part of the course activities, I had to create an "interactive and informational" resource for tracking educational technology ideas, tools, and articles for an online undergraduate course I am revising about incident investigation and analysis.

I decided to complete this activity using Google+ Collections. "Safety Education & Training" is now a public collection of links, tools, ideas, and other activities associated with undergraduate and graduate safety education and workplace safety training.

Here's snapshot of how it looks:

The Industrious Hygienist's new "Safety Education and Training" Google+ Collection.

I'll be keeping the resource active and cross-posting useful information on this blog. Hopefully, I find some time to create some open educational resources (OERs) for occupational safety education, since there's not much out there except information from U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Chemical Safety Board, U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the International Labour Organization.

Search of the OER Commons showed only a few resources related to occupational safety.

Two of the most interesting safety-related active learning items included in my collection are:

OSHA Hazard Identification Game
A safety hazard recognition game that is freely available to all employers and safety trainers for use.

Vivid Learning Systems
This group has 6 freely available interactive safety training practice exercises that safety students could learn from.
