The main objective of the course is to raise awareness among students about health and safety issues in the workplace and environmental aspects, providing them with a professional alphabet able to promote learning from work and to promote correct and rational behavior.
During the training course the production processes, the resources used, the timing, the environmental contexts and the dynamics of the labor market are analyzed, in order to build organizational models of safety management with the human factor at the center and the optimization of its "care".
In this way the students will understand the relationships between the world of work and safety, gaining the awareness that safety is an integral part of the production process.
The course then addresses the innovation in its various components (labor market, technology,, ..) always comparing with the history and work experience: this will be a first step for a continuous training path for the entire working life.
Another objective of the course is then the qualification of students as potential subjects who will cover roles of promotion and organization of prevention and protection in the workplace.
At the end of the course the students will have acquired knowledge and skills regarding the normative and technical aspects, the roles and skills of the insiders, the risk assessment and the related prevention and protection systems, work organization and management tools. and monitoring.

The lessons of the course are of a frontal nature and will develop the following topics:
• Application contexts and recipients of safety regulations
• Danger, risk and risk assessment
• Prevention and protection measures
• Organizational models and the organization of the workplace
• Machines, work equipment and systems
• Collective and individual protection systems
• Special work: work at height, confined spaces, ....
• Asbestos risk, noise, vibrations, MMC, ....
• Demolitions and prefabrications
• Planning and security management tools (DVR + DUVRI + PSC + POS + FO)
• Problem setting and problem solving techniques - exercises

The safety regulations "UNIQUE TEXT ON THE PROTECTION OF HEALTH AND SAFETY IN WORKPLACE" D.Lgs. 81/08 free download from websites
All presentations illustrated by the teacher during the lessons can be downloaded from the University's e-learning platform
"GUIDE TO ACCIDENT PREVENTION IN CONSTRUCTION SITES" published by the CPT of Varese distributed free to all students present

The course is mainly held with lectures.
In the first lesson there is a questionnaire with closed answers with the aim of monitoring the students' entrance knowledge and starting to become aware of the problems covered by the course.
In the other lessons are instead projected a series of power point presentations containing the definitions and principles established by the current regulations and by the rules of good technique.
In addition, presentations contain multiple images of work contexts, organizational solutions, operational methods and best practice schemes.
In a lesson then an application tutorial is foreseen with a risk assessment simulation in a particular work context (construction site sticker)
In the final lessons, some planning and security management tools are presented (DVR, PSC ...) with the illustration of standard schemes, real examples and simulations for some contexts and / or work phases.
