The Heath & Safety Unit of the Directorate for Educational Services of the Maltese Ministry of Education, Employment and the Family.
The unit is working to promote awareness among all students on health and safety issues.
There are sixteen peripatetic H&S teachers in all. These work in pairs as follows: four teams of two service the primary schools of three colleges per team in Malta, while the fourth pair service Gozo; another pair services the ‘special’ schools by which we mean the six schools for children with special needs and any place where children learn that is not a regular college school; while the last pair are running a H&S program particularly designed for the school leavers of the secondaries especially those who are not academically inclined and who would probably not continue their education beyond Form 5.
There are also two other teachers, one in Maria regina and the other in Gozo teaching the very young in a project named “Catch-‘em-young”.
