What’s the role of education and training for the development of a culture of prevention? – was the leading question of the special session at the APEC event in Sochi.
Dr Azlan Darus, Social Security Organization of Malaysia (SOCSO), introduced the awareness raising campaign and different programs for educating workers and employers based on the recent OSH sharing and networking strategy in Malaysia. Prof Dr Natalia Prisekina, Law School of the Far Eastern Federal University (DVFU), outlined the APEC education strategy and the ‘University City’ project on Russky Island, where OSH is not only part of the curriculum but also an appropriate infrastructure ensures a safe and healthy learning and working environment.
Prof Dr Frank Guldenmund, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, discussed in his presentation how organisations can be trained to work with their safety culture, using the development process of culture. People themselves have to understand culture and need a shared space that’s psychologically safe to improve their way of how to interact with each other and the context.
Dr Matthew Lawrie, Culture Regeneration Associates Ltd., described the Hearts and Minds tools to facilitate cultural change by empowering people to finding their own solutions.
Finally, Diana de Sousa Policarpo, Authority for the Working Conditions (ACT), Portugal, reported on the EU-funded project ‘Mind Safety – Safety Matters’ aiming at training teachers as social transformation agents and developing practical guides for teachers and students.
