College students solve physical workload problems
Young people with jobs in agriculture and horticulture are exposed to physically demanding working conditions causing risks to their health and safety. This project from The Netherlands took the form of a training programme, and targeted agricultural students aged 16-20 years who were employed and attending college at the same time. The programme had two main goals: to educate students on physical strain and how to cope with it and to challenge students to assess their own work environments and to think up ways of improving it.
Level of Education: Initial vocational education and training
