Stop

[stop]
The word stop has several possible meanings in the English language, but most commonly means to cease moving.

Additionally, stop can refer to:

  • STOP Programme - (An acronym for "Straight Thinking On Probation") - In some jurisdictions, offenders of certain offences, especially sexual offences, are put on a STOP programme to modify their criminal behavior.
  • STOP - (An acronym for "Safety Training Observation Program") - The STOP™ series provides a path to workplace safety excellence by making safe behavior and workplace conditions part of the work culture, thus preventing injuries and incidents. It is the most popular and successful workplace safety training on the global market today.

STOP™ programs use a combination of methods to give people the information, skills and willingness to work more safely, maximize their learning and apply what they learn to the real world. The programs feature a three-part approach:

• Individual self-study. Workbooks are used to introduce basic concepts and begin safety skill development.

• Field or application activities. STOP™ program participants practice what they have learned in their own work areas.

• Group meetings. After viewing a video, participants discuss what they have learned and consider how it can be applied.
