Work Safety

Work safety training (compulsory by law)

According to art. 2, art. 4 and art. 37 of the G.v.D. n. 81/2008, all students are obliged to attend a work safety training before entering didactic laboratories, workshops or computer laboratories or before beginning an internship.

The training is available on the e-learning platform OLE, which you can use at any time and from which you can download the confirmation of attendance after the successful completion of the test. The respective course is considered completed as soon as the confirmation of attendance has been downloaded.
The complete training (8 hrs.) is divided into two parts:

  • General training (4 hrs)
  • Specific training VDU (4 hrs.)
  • Additional specific training for didactic laboratories and workshops (4 hrs):
    Before entering didactic laboratories or workshops, you will receive an invitation from your faculty for a compulsory participation in a third safety course. The contents are tailored according to the risk area.

Students of the Master in Primary Education have different directions to follow, at this link you'll find all the information.
