The purpose of this study was to determine the knowledge level of vocational laboratory teachers in technical colleges and institutes in Alabama regarding tort liability concerning negligence. Furthermore, the study sought to determine the extent to which these same teachers observed and enforced safety practices in the conduct of their vocational laboratory classes. The investigator examined whether relationships existed between knowledge and practice and the factors of location--urban, suburban, or rural, level of education, teaching experience, age, gender, and industrial experience. Two hundred and ninety-seven vocational laboratory teachers in the technical colleges and institutes in Alabama participated in the study. The researcher did not make a random selection of vocational laboratory teachers, but included all vocational laboratory teachers as identified by the president/director of each institution upon the researcher's visit to the institution.
