Exposure of Teachers to Occupational Hazards in High-School Technology-Education Shop

This research will investigate occupational hazards of teachers in high-school technology-education shops (TES).  It will examine exposures such as noise, vibration, air quality, and lighting, as well as compliance with regulations and the factors affecting the exposures. The intent of the project is to prepare the groundwork for developing determinants-of-exposure models to guide subsequent interventions to make TES safer.
