This Good Practice Example won the 2nd price at the 6th Training & Innovation, which was held in the scope of the European Week “Safe start” at the BG Institute Work and Health (BGAG) in Dresden. Speakers from 8 European countries presented good practice examples from ENETOSH of how occupational safety and health can be mainstreamed into education and training in different phases of life, from kindergarten children over teenagers to the elder worker.
Approximately 60 participants from 11 European countries benefited from the event in terms of learning new and innovative methods, the exchange of experience among experts and the establishment of international contacts.

The aims are:
  • To increase the awareness of occupational health and safety in young persons as a matter of relevance for themselves
  • Over a reasonable time span to decrease the number of occupational accidents affecting young persons. On the long run to reduce occurrences among all ages.

  • To monitor the teaching process by several measures, e.g. time spent, coverage, satisfaction with the various parts (teachers and pupils separately)
  • To estimate further success by looking at implementation after formal ending of the study period

The aims are operationalised by means of a complete teaching package centered around the “Safety Toolbox”

The course consists of 4 Parts:
  • Part 1: Preparation of teachers. 3 hours course for 7th grade teachers.
  • Part 2: First introduction in the class. Five hours of class education for 7th grade pupils by their own teachers.
  • Part 3: The fun part. Practical exercises. Five hour “Occupational Health and Safety Day" in the school. An experimental set-up is introduced with the four themes: Chemical substances and materials, Noise, Handling of heavy parts and Psychological Safety and Health Aspects
  • Part 4: From experience to perspective. At least 5 hour class teaching in the weeks following part 3.

The idea of the project toolbox has proved successful. More than 90% of the participants have indicated, that they have learned something.
