Promoting Occupational Health & Safety – “NAPO for teachers”


ETUCE, the official campaign partner of EU-OSHA, the European Agency for Occupational Health and Safety, also celebrates the 20th anniversary of the EU-OSHA NAPO, the animated character of EU-OSHA, who promotes and disseminates OSH quality information all over Europe in a didactic way.

To celebrate this anniversary, the Agency has developed further series of occupational safety and health (OSH) education toolkits for teachers, aimed at introducing health and safety topics to primary school children in an educational, yet fun and imaginative way using the Napo clips and creative activities.

The resource packs offer suggested lesson plans to educate children aged between seven and eleven on the importance of health and safety. The informative education toolkits feature full instructions, suggested activities and accompanying downloadable resources, to provide teachers and educators support and guidance on incorporating OSH messages into the existing curriculum. The flexible lessons are designed to fit alongside current curriculum subjects to reinforce and assist in their teaching. These include, among other topics, personal Health and Social Education (PHSE) and language learning.
