Cartoon Character Educates Children on EHS

EU-OSHA has made its way into children’s hearts with Napo, the cartoon character that teaches basic health and safety knowledge at the primary school level. As part of a series of free OSH education toolkits provided by the Napo Consortium and EU-OSHA, Napo covers topics that children aged 7 to 11 are likely to encounter at home and at school, including safety signs, risks to the skin and back, and the identification of risks and hazards. The educational aids come with lesson plans, suggested activities and accompanying downloadable resources, and are intended to guide teachers on how to incorporate OSH messages into existing curriculum.
