Symposium 15 ‘People-centred prevention strategies on OSH’ at the XXI World Congress for Safety and Health at Work, 5 September 2017, Singapore

More than 120 people participated in Symposium 15 ‘People-centred prevention strategies on OSH’ at the XXI World Congress for Safety and Health at Work, Singapore. The session was jointly organized by ENETOSH, the Occupational Safety and Health Council (OSHC), Hong Kong SAR, China and the Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MoLSS), Turkey.

The participants enjoyed an unconventional and truly interactive session. Four speakers (Peter Paulus, Hanan Elnagdy, Jocelyn Chng and Bonnie Yau) walked and talked to the participants who were grouped into four sections. Each participant was able to experience three of four exciting presentations demonstrating of how to put people-centred prevention into practice. Nine key-factors were derived from the examples in advance of the session. The participants were asked to vote the most effective key factors in the examples presented live in Singapore and by this to develop a common understanding of people-centred prevention.

Lead moderator, Attiya Khan, asked the participants to relax from their efforts and to enjoy the video ‘Pay it forward safety’ from Lattitude Productions.

The next highlight was the impressive key-note by Kevin Furniss, who offered to take part in the reflection of his journey from storytelling to storybuilding: Safety leadership in the past was about storytelling, leaders today need to invite people to do things together and make ordinary people the heroes of the stories. We all need to develop our capability in building effective relationships, how to gain trust. ‘The inspirational leader listens to the people in her organization. Talking to people about your passion is not enough. To ‘share meaning’ – my definition for communication - you must allow the ideas and thoughts of your staff to help form the vision and mission, or minimally, the goals and action plan.’

The strategic potential of the people-centred approach was outlined by Tim Tregenza with a reference to the ranking of the key-factors by the participants.

Finally Bonnie Yau and Hanan Elnagdy received the award for the most people-centred practice, based on the voting of the participants as well.

The session was chaired by Kwon Hyuck Myun, the four experts groups were moderated by Robin M. Izzo, Alan Cowen, Davide Scotti and Hülya Ünver.

In the scope of the Russia Health and Safety Week 2017, a session under the title ‘Education for a culture of prevention’ was held on 12 April in Sochi. The session was part of the event ‘Building a Culture of Prevention on OSH in APEC Economies’.
Moderated by Dmitry Platygin, General Director of All-Russia Research Institute of Labour of the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, Russia and Dr Ulrike Bollmann, Head of International Cooperation at the Institute for Work and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance and Coordinator of ENETOSH, several experts discussed the role of education and training for the development of a culture of prevention from different perspectives.

The APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Education strategy was endorsed by a leaders declaration at the 6th APEC Educational Ministerial meeting under the theme ‘An Inclusive and Quality Education’ on 5 – 6 October 2016 in Lima. The meeting was organized by Russia and Peru. The declaration said: ‘We encourage our economies to collaborate on improving education in the Asia-Pacific region under the principles established in the APEC Education Strategy. This strategy outlines a path for achieving a strong and cohesive APEC education community characterized by inclusive and quality education that supports sustainable economic growth and social well-being, enhances competencies, accelerates innovation and increases employability.’

The Symposium held on 26 August at the XX World Congress on Safety and Health at Work 2014 – Global Forum for Prevention in Frankfurt, Germany, was a follow up to the joint workshop “Mainstreaming OSH into education: Towards a culture of prevention” that took place at ILO Training Centre Turin in 2012. The symposium in Frankfurt focused on the fundamental question, how the education system, the community and the world of work do interact. Within three workshops scientists and practitioners from the three policy areas exchanged what they have in common and investigated how they can work together to build a culture of prevention. The symposium was organized by ENETOSH in cooperation with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), the All-Russia Institute for Occupational Safety and Labour Economics (VCOT) and the Centre for Applied Health Sciences (ZAG) at the Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany.

| Bild: | Chairs of the symposium were Steve Horvath, President and CEO of CCOHS and Ulrike Bollmann, coordinator of ENETOSH. The moderator was David Gold, Gold-Knecht Associates, Switzerland, supported by the three workshop-moderators Ulrike Craes, BGW Academy Dresden, Germany; Lester Claravall, Oklahoma Department of Labour, USA and Tom McDaniel, Siemens Energy, USA.

More than 100 people, coming from different regions of the world, joined the ENETOSH symposium in Frankfurt. Divided into the three groups the audience set out into searching solutions by changing the perspective between the groups. The method was: Ask questions! The moderator David Gold explained: “Only those, who ask questions, can hope for innovative and meaningful answers.” Click here to have a look at the “Question Cards”.

The questioning was based on a brief statement done by one representative per policy area: Peter Paulus, Leuphana University Lüneburg, represented the education sector; Sue Boychuk, Ministry of Labour Ontario, Canada, represented the world of work and Louise Logan, President and CEO of Parachute, Canada, the community field.

The symposium was started by an introduction of a delegation of the first International Youth Congress on Health and Safety by the chair of this symposium. Click here to read more about “A New Generation in Health and Safety” at the blog of Steve Horvath. He closed the symposium as follows: “The participants lit a fire, they tried to do something transversal in various groups to point out a common understanding of how to interact to build a culture of prevention.”

To get the ball rolling
ENETOSH SEE kick-off in Zagreb
| Bild: | Croatia will be the 28th Member State of the European Union from 1 July 2013 on. Serbia received the candidate status beginning of March. Maybe that was the right moment for ENETOSH to inviting the South Eastern European Countries (SEE) to reflect on the importance of education and training on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) for the development of a culture of prevention. The event was hosted by the University College of Applied Sciences in Safety in the Europe House Zagreb and took place on the 17 April 2012. The meeting was supported by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).
47 representatives from 21 countries discussed on how “to get the ball rolling” for education and training on OSH in their home country.

The dean of the University College of Applied Sciences in Safety, Sever Slavko, opened the conference. The work of ENETOSH was introduced by Ulrike Bollmann and Davorin Kacian, coordinators of the network. Susanne Ulk from Denmark, Nuria Mancebo from Spain and Rana Güven from Turkey reported on their work on mainstreaming OSH into education in their countries. In addition Rana Güven provided information about the OIC-OSHNET. Examples of Good Practice were given at different levels of the education system: How to integrate OSH into daily life at school (Ulrike Craes); How to encourage young people to cope with risks during their first work experience (Paul Gordon); How to raise awareness of Social partners and other stakeholders on OSH? (Nikola Georgiev)

A prospect into the future was given by Davorin Kacian outlining the establishment of a student and alumni network on OSH.

OSH and education – approaches to a successful cooperation
Workshop at A+A 2009
| Bild: |
65 participants from 11 different countries attended the workshop “OSH and education - approaches to a successful cooperation”, which took place on the 5th November 2009 during the A+A conference in Düsseldorf. The workshop was organised by the European Network Education and Training in Occupational Safety and Health, ENETOSH, in co-operation with the statutory accident insurance for the public sector of North-Rhine Westphalia and the expert group on education of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).

Dr. Gerwin-Lutz Reinink, head of the department for school sport and health promotion of the Ministry for Education and Training of North-Rhine Westphalia put it in a nutshell: at last we are listening to an education specialist on the topic of occupational safety and health and education. How often does that happen?

In his introductory address Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jörg Ruhloff looked at the circumstances under which health and safety can be of educational significance. Sarah Copsey, from the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, then described how integration of OSH into education and training can best be promoted in Europe.

In a practical forum consisting of eight separate thematic stands, participants had an opportunity to discuss national and international examples of successful cooperation between the fields of OSH and education. The range included integrative approaches to promoting health and safety in general and vocational schools as well as universities, examples of cooperation between ministries and between the social partners, a national educational program for promoting safety and an international comparison of health promotion in schools.

Leading representatives from the policy fields of safety, health and education formulated the core messages drawn up by the thematic stands and rounded the session off with recommendations on how cooperation within and between the various policy areas they represented could be improved.

The atmosphere in the workshop was one of openness and mutual interest, and there was a general consensus that promoting health and safety in kindergartens, schools and universities was of crucial importance for developing a culture of prevention.
