Safety and Health in the Technology Classroom for Teachers 
A free Internet course of 2 - 3hrs duration has been built specifically as an aid to teachers of the technology subjects to help them in their understanding of safety, health and welfare, particularly within the technology classroom. This resource was initiated by the Health and Safety Authority and was supported by T4. The on-line course was developed by Alison and is available at www.alison.com/hsa.  A class group can be set up to monitor student learning using an Alison Manager virtual classroom.  A record of learning can also be obtained on completion of the course.

Other Safety and Health courses available include:
..........Managing Safety and Health in Schools
