Abstract

Summary The child with some form of health disability should be trained into a sphere in which he can work and not be allowed through his school life to train for a job for which he will be medically unfit. Safety is a habit and cannot be acquired suddenly. It should be taught to children as thoroughly as is road safety at the present time. To help with this, more of the industrial environment should be introduced into the school workshop than is at present, as theoretical training is soon forgotten. The health aspects of occupation dealing with protection of skins, the cleaning of skins after work, the wearing of protective clothing and so on, should be introduced at a very early age indeed. The prejudice and dissension which these measures often cause, in occupation, later would be largely removed.
