Raising awareness about musculoskeletal disorders among future professionals
TITAN is launching its participation in the Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load 2020-22 campaign by focusing on an important stakeholder group for manufacturing and industry: university students of technology, a significant pool of future professionals in key jobs.
Education/training on Health and Safety at the workplace is missing from the formal university curriculum so, in collaboration with the local chapters of BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) in three Universities in Greece, we have developed a series of H&S seminars for interested students.
Over the next two years, the health component of the seminars will focus on education on the nature and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, providing expert information and presenting preventive measures.
First training will take place with the BEST team at the National Technical University of Athens and the next trainings will be rolled out in the next few months.
