Prior to this project, students and teachers of the Mihail Sturdza Secondary School were exposed to various risks. No standard tool was used for risk assessment. Additional problems were caused by the lack of expertise in the area. As a result, risk assessment had never been performed. Key elements A partnership was established between the Occupational Safety and Health Department of the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iasi and the Mihail Sturdza school team. A specialist team from the university developed a guide for school risk assessment. This guide includes instructions on how to collect and quantify data using specific software. It also includes a set of recommendations on preventive measures for specific risks. A clear overview of the risks within the school is presented graphically, thus allowing the development of appropriate prevention measures. A team consisting of the school manager, safety officer, occupational physician, representatives of the school administration and students was formed to identify and analyse the risks, after receiving appropriate training. Risk assessment resulted in a three-level risk identification process in the school. Corrective actions were proposed accordingly, and priorities were established. A cost-benefit analysis was carried out alongside with a programme meant to evaluate the results of the preventive plan implementation Results The corrective actions resulted in improved safety and health for the students, teachers and the school administrative staff. Awareness of health and safety within the learning/working environment was raised among the students, teachers and administrative staff. The project constituted a good start for the promotion of a preventive culture within the school community and the families
