From early education centres to universities and driving schools, the education sector can be stressful and cause a deterioration of mental and physical well-being. While education may not be considered the most ‘at risk’ occupation sector in terms of safety and health, prevention of work-related psychosocial and musculoskeletal disorders could be of significant importance. A strong occupational safety and health (OSH) management system including risk awareness and training can create a culture of positive staff well-being.

EU-OSHA’s latest report on Europe’s education sector includes policy pointers on areas of OSH management.
