BELGIUM: campaign on the labelling of dangerous products for young people

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > BELGIUM: campaign on the labelling of dangerous products for young people

In May, the federal authorities will meet technical and vocational education students in a fully equipped truck, the “Federal Truck”. The aim is to inform them about the new labelling of dangerous chemicals and the safety measures to be implemented. 

Several disciplines are concerned, such as construction, woodworking, hairdressing, agriculture, horticulture, automotive mechanics, etc. During a 50-minute session in the truck, students will have access to a variety of resources: videos, games, quizzes, recommendations, etc. The objective is to show them how to use these dangerous products safely and to avoid accidents during their internships or in their future workplaces.
