"Sìcura - Safety and Health at workplace, study and research of the Alma Mater Studiorum"
Safety and health at work are a choice that affects everyone, not only to protect themselves from risks and dangers, but also to take care of themselves and others. On the occasion of the European Week for Safety and Health at Work (from 24th to 28th of October), the University of Bologna launches "Sìcura - Safety and Health at workplace, study and research of the Alma Mater Studiorum": a program of cultural events, practical experiences and moments of confrontation to rediscover safety and health at work as a choice that fully affects our lives, our relationships and entire communities. The initiative will take place as part of the activities in support of the European campaign promoted by EU-OSHA, of which the University is a national partner.
Among the hundreds of classrooms, libraries and offices, there are unexpected glimpses, surprising laboratories, and more: students and researchers often go far to explore the seabed, archaeological excavations, volcanic flows, medieval foundations, large desert expanses. All unusual "workplaces" that are told in the photographic exhibition "Unibo you don't expect", set up at Palazzo Poggi (via Zamboni, 33 - Bologna) from 17th to 28th of October.
University of Bologna is deeply committed on the subject of health and safety at the workplace with an impact also to the town as a whole. The program of events will be launched on Monday 24th of October by the public meeting "Dangerous relationships: health, safety, work" (4 pm, Aula Absidale di Santa Lucia - via de 'Chiari 25 / A - Bologna), with the participation of sociologists, jurists and OSH experts by confronting each other to rethink the increasingly evident short-circuit between our forms of life and work and the environmental conditions in which we find ourselves immersed.
The appointments of the “Sìcura” events are aimed primarily at the academic community and some initiatives will be accessible to citizens.
