Risk Management Considerations for Class Supervision
A female student participating in a motorcycle training program at a local college is injured in 2001 during a training exercise. She becomes startled when her bike takes off faster than she anticipates. The motorcycle jumps the curb and she falls off, injuring her ankle. A year earlier, a male student in a woodworking class cuts off half of two fingers while using a jointer – a tool with very sharp blades used for smoothing the edges of boards. His fingers are hanging over the edge of the board when they are amputated.
