International "Training & Innovation" forum
"Training & Innovation" started out in 2001 as a meeting place for trainers from Germany's "Berufsgenossenschaft" institutions. Under ENETOSH's aegis, it evolved into an international forum for sharing knowledge and experience in the area of education and training in safety and health.

Since 2004, the event had been organised in cooperation with the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work.

"Training & Innovation" was mainly about innovative educational methods with which to promote OSH knowledge transfer. However, ENETOSH expanded the concept by including mainstreaming of safety and health into education and training as an additional goal.

"Training and Innovation" was aimed at anyone concerned with safety and health in education and training: staff in day nurseries, teachers, lecturers and political decision makers seeking to promote the mainstreaming of safety and health into educational programmes and institutions.

The results are recorded on the internet on the DGUV website (DE) and the ENETOSH web platform (EN) - details see below. A separate report was published for Training & Innovation 2007.

Each "Training & Innovation" was a milestone in the joint effort to improve the quality of education and training in occupational safety and health and to promote the mainstreaming of safety and health into Europe's education systems.
