Project 1 – STF Assessment
The student will perform an assessment for slips, trip, and falls at a school of their choosing. They should try to limit their choice to a smaller building. In case of a large building, they should concentrate on the cafeteria and kitchen, main entrances, and main hallways. The student will develop their own audit instrument for conditions, exposures, and behaviors, complete a short report on the findings, and suggest corrections for each discrepancy found. This project will be completed and submitted at the end of week 5.
