Abstract

The aim of this project is to develop an online casebook on Industrial Accident Analysis for facilitating the learning and teaching processes of occupational ergonomics. The online casebook contains self-checking, included case description, case analysis, and exercises for assessing students' effectiveness of learning in the course of surfing. Learning tools like a comprehensive ergonomics glossary, real life case studies, and some related web resources are also provided. To evaluate the effectiveness of this online courseware, a questionnaire addressing the anticipated benefits is designed. The results of questionnaire showed that users achieved an above the average satisfaction level for the use of the courseware, and it also indicated that the courseware did bring certain educational benefits to the users. It is hoped that the online casebook would help students to have an indepth learning of the techniques used for preventing and investigating industrial accidents. It is also hoped that engineers and occupational health and safety professionals could find this courseware helpful in providing them a range of information for accident analysis and helping them to acquire knowledge on occupational health and safety.
