Director of the Institute for Work and Health of the DGUV
ENETOSH is committed to support the campaign to exemplify how the integration of safety and health into education can be carried out practically in order to contribute to the development of a culture of prevention.
The European Network Education and Training in Occupational Safety and Health (ENETOSH) offers a platform for systematic knowledge-sharing on issues concerning education and training in occupational safety and health. The fundamental aim of ENETOSH is to mainstream OSH into education. The assumption is that mainstreaming OSH into education will help boost the overall quality of education and prepares the ground for the development of a culture of prevention. In educational institutions, the issue of dangerous substances is particularly important: on the one hand, as with any other workplace, hazards due to dangerous substances have to be prevented, and this equally applies to pupils, students, teachers and non-teaching staff as well as researchers. On the other hand, educational institutions play a central role in the earliest possible sensitization to dangerous substances and the safe and health-conscious handling of dangerous substances in everyday life and later professional life. ENETOSH is coordinated by the Institute for Work and Health the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).
ENETOSH will support the 2018-19 Healthy Workplaces MANAGE DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES Campaign of EU OSHA to raise the awareness of dangerous substances at all levels of the education system to prepare the ground for the development of a culture of prevention. The focus will be on creative didactic approaches, innovative teaching methods and tools to conveying the topic dangerous substances in pre-school, school, initial education and training, higher education and at the workplace.
