Mainstreaming Health and Safety in Schools: Practical Insights from the Teachers
Burgos-Garcia, Antonio
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n13 p1851-1860 Jul 2015
This study presents the results from a study funded by the Directorate General of Occupational Health and Safety, an institutional body that pertains to the Employment Council of the Regional Government of Andalusia (Spain) and Ministry of Employment and Labour (Spain). The analysis "focuses" mainly on the teachers who work in pre-primary, primary and secondary education in Andalusia. The aim is to discover the current situation of the educational institutions in matters of occupational safety and health, establish mechanisms to orient didactic and organisational intervention to facilitate the teaching-learning process of a prevention culture, and extract basic elements to acquire training in health and safety. To do so, an inferential and descriptive analysis of quantitative data was conducted ("research methodology"). All of this made it possible to discover the reality of the job risk prevention culture in the schools. An "especially important result" in this research, in order to achieve quality education in terms of prevention, safety and health, must receive preparation in their Initial Training and later in the Teacher Centres. They must be able to evaluate the teaching-learning methodology used, the suitability of what is taught for the objective proposed, and the media and/or resources based on criteria of quality, quantity, use or interest in the classroom, as expressed in the Spanish Strategy for Occupational Safety and Health and in the Second Andalusian Plan for Occupational Health and Job Risk Prevention for teachers in public schools dependent on the Education Department of the Regional Government of Andalusia (Spain).
