Sounds like an interesting program.  Student janitors in particular need training and especially if they are cleaning up the art or theater department studios and shops.  And don't forget training the teaching assistants in those departments.  They are so often totally ignorant about the hazards of the chemicals and equipment they are around like kilns, clay, printmaking acids and solvents, dimmer boards and other stage electrics, wood and metal shop materials and on and on.

I know that administrators somehow think the art and theater professors are training them.  They thought the same thing about Professor Harran.

Haven't done any formal training - but we are looking to apply for a grant to develop student worker training - all student workers as part of the programs targeting audiences that aren't typically addressed.  This seemed to be another area where we have at-risk populations.  I know that there are intern training issues, student janitors, office workers etc.

This makes sense to me. Has anyone developed training for TA's about how to approach these situations? I've run it into classes I've taught in classrooms and it can be a bit of a surprise the first time it happens to you...
