Title: Assessing the Feasibility of Developing, Implementing and Evaluating an Occupational Health and Safety Training Program that Would Embed Curriculum for Enhancing Literacy and other Essential Skills
Category: Intervention Research
Subcategory: Intervention Research
This project would examine how to develop, implement, and evaluate a training program that would improve literacy and other basic skills as part of occupational health and safety training. There is, however, little research on whether adding literacy curriculum to OHS training would make it more effective.
The overall objective of the project is to examine the feasibility of implementing and assessing a training program that would embed literacy/essential skills-enhancing curriculum within occupational health and safety training.
The project will determine whether embedding literacy enhancement features into safety training programs increase the effectiveness of the training.
