The project was set up as a cross-section (mechanics, welding, electronics) and cross-subject initiative. First the safety officer of the school checked the legislation and applied the relevant issues to the machines. After that a risk assessment set up together with the students. Therefore a checklist with the minimum standards for machines and a task analysis was used. Several measures were discussed and proposed. Then, the students put the best one into practice. As a follow-up to the project a VCA training course was organised for technical advisers, teachers and students.
