EU-OSHA Creates Fun Safety & Health Toolkit for Teachers

European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), along with the Napo Consortium, has created a resource for teachers that introduces basic safety and health concepts for young students ages 7 to 11. Using its Napo cartoon character, who spreads safety and health messages in videos, the "Napo for Teachers" resource provides a series of toolkits for teaches that includes Napo video clips and creative activities. In addition, the kits provide accompanying downloadable resources, full instructions and are designed to mesh with current subjects such as science, personal health and social education, arts, language learning and road safety.
