A step closer to the real world
The Dublin Institute of Technology is one of Ireland’s largest and most innovative third-level institutions, with a population of 22,000 students and approximately 2,000 staff members. DIT offers over 300 different programmes from apprenticeship right through to postgraduate level. DIT’s campus sites are currently located in over 40 buildings around the city centre. Universities and colleges in Ireland have to comply with OSH legislation, which requires them to prevent risks to their own staff and to third parties including students. In assisting the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) to meet its legal obligations, its safety team has sought, at the same time, to promote a safety culture among students with the aim that they will take this away with them to their future workplaces.
