The Secretariat of the Working Environment, in Danish: Arbejdsmiljøsekretariatet, is a combined secretariate carrying tasks for three Branch Working Environment Councils: BAR U&F, BAR SoSU (Social and Healthiness Education) and BAR FOKA (Financial, Public Office and Administration).

One of the project areas in BAR U&F is to mainstream Occupational Safety and Health into Education from preschool, school to vocational and higher education. Therefore it is inevitable, that the Ar and Mi-project as well as "New Kids on the Job" are included in the BAR U&F".
