Promoting OSH and OiRA to students and teachers with a little help from Napo

Introducing occupational safety and health (OSH) issues to young people helps prepare them for working life and can ensure that the message of safe and healthy workplaces is ingrained at an early age.

The Greek focal point is holding an online training seminar on 19 May to introduce students and teachers from the School of Public Health of the University of West Attica to the most important factors involved in OSH. They also learn about how to use Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools for conducting an online risk assessment study and are introduced to Napo, the hero in a series of animated films on OSH topics and risk prevention.

The seminar highlights the significance of health and safety at work, the basic OSH principles and national OSH legislation. Students also learn about hazards at work and how a risk assessment can help them manage risks in their future workplace.

Speakers use the Napo in the workplace – Understanding MSDs as a bridge for presenting the targets and priorities of the 2020-22 Healthy Workplaces Campaign on musculoskeletal disorders, due to the high level of interest on the topic expressed by the students.
