In May, the federal authorities will visit several Belgian schools on board a fully furnished truck, the “Federal Truck”. Their aim is to teach students in technical and vocational training courses (construction, the wood and hairdressing industries, agriculture, horticulture, automotive mechanical engineering, etc.) how to safely use dangerous chemical products and prevent accidents during their courses or in their future workplace.
By means of amusing and instructive tools such as posters, videos, brochures, a quiz and a learning game, the students will be able to learn to relate the new pictograms to chemical dangers, use products more safely, work safely, and use the “safety data sheet”. They will also be able to take a photo to remember their learning day.
