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.
