Learning modules of the BG ETEM

“InterACTIVELY SAFE AND HEALTHY AT THE WORKPLACE“ – just like currently around 40 learning modules on different issues concerning occupational safety and health. In a descriptive and varied manner, the learning modules interactively convey knowledge on occupational safety and health to the user. The spectrum ranges from general issues, such as “skin protection”, “office work” or “lifting and carrying”, to specific hazards that can arise when working with electric current or hazardous substances. Within 15 to 20 minutes, each learning module conveys the relevant information on the issue. In addition, there’s a knowledge quiz with at least 10 questions - as a self-test for the trainee. However, the learning modules don’t replace the personal instruction.
