A growing number of employees in the sector are from an ethnic background and not from Denmark. This situation affects the training. To better understand the situation an anthropological analysis was made which examined the barriers and measures that needed to be considered. The results were used to develop a specific initiative, the “Take good care of me” programme. This web-based training is a support tool for the introduction of new employees from an ethnic minority background. It initiates dialogue and is studied carefully with a key person involving the interaction between young employees. The programme uses simple visual and audio to give access to information about the main risks and conditions in the sector. The training methods involve the active participation of course members, for example through solving tasks in practice, and by involving them in the production process, focussing on the real working environment and possibilities for prevention. The aim is to focus on the trainee’s potential and responsibility for influencing their safety and health, and to create awareness.
