Another goal in the Project SEARCH curriculum is to educate interns in the area of workplace safety. Interns will demonstrate knowledge and skills related to safety in the workplace by:
- Practicing functional literary skills for the workplace – safety signs, directional signs and symbols, locating areas on a map
- Identify safe working practices related to the workplace
- Show knowledge of occupational safety rules in the workplace
- Present solutions related to unsafe work practices
Safety Skills are transferable skills. Interns can utilize them in a variety of work settings when Project SEARCH is completed and jobs are sought-after.
