Gaining access to workers in the small building trades to promote the safety message is always a huge challenge in this notoriously difficult sector, with a high accident rate. This Italian project sought to train a series of tutors who, in turn, could pass on basic occupational safety and health information to others in further training sessions. Of interest is that this project clearly showed that small trading firms in the construction industry which implemented procedures aimed at preventing accidents at work gained in reputation and financial performance. The safety tutorship idea was launched in Sassari, and is surely a model worthy of imitation.
