Most adolescents in Greece receive only scarce information about work accidents (mainly from mass media) and general environmental healtheffects (primarily at school), but no tuition on occupational health (OH), before they enter the labour market. Training of young workers in OH is often inadequate. This prompted in 2002, a five year pilot education program under the aegis of the Mayor, with the endorsement of the Municipal Council and with the participation of the Committee of Health and Welfare of the Athens Municipality of Psychico, in collaboration with the administration of seven general secondary schools in this Municipality, operating on existing municipal and school resources.
