The National Confederation of Employees of Moldova (CNPM) together with the Ministry of Education and with the support of the Project- Training partnership for craftsmen Kreishandwerkerschaft HersfeldRotenburg developed a set of training materials to ensure Safety and Health at work.
The books are for 32 vocational schools and 2 Centres of excellence from Moldova and were donated during a training held on May 30, 2017.
The National Confederation of Employees considers that the accidents at work represent an essential aspect of labour relations; this is why one of the organization's priorities is to prevent them.
"The cost of accidents at work with serious consequences rises up to 1 million and 200 thousands of lei and of an accident resulting in death up to 800.000 lei. Costs are enormous both for employees and employers this is why it is very important that educational institutions would promote safety at work", said Vladislav Caminschi, the executive director of CNPM, one of the books' authors.
Viorica Condruc, main consultant of the Department of the technical vocational studies of the Ministry of Education declared that books on safety at work are extremely helpful and valorous and constitute an important support for preparing qualified future specialists.
Manager of the Project Training partnership for craftsmen, Wolfgang Dressel, mentioned that when pupils come to school they are not conscious about the risks associated with the profession, this are both visible and invisible. "Handbooks will help teachers and pupils to know better these risks in order to be protected. We are sure that they will be efficiently used to ensure safety at work in the vocational schools", has added project manager.
The set of teaching materials contains a handbook for students that offers all the information regarding the risks of different professions and ways of prevention, as well as a handbook for teachers that contains a set of tests.
We remind that CNPM is the organization that has expertise in the field of Safety and Health at Work and provides services in this field.
