 All the EU States follow the system of EU-OSH Legislation ( Art. 16 of the Framework Directive) which sets the minimum standards for workers protection. Among the principal directive arrangements there is the worker's training. This has to make him responsible of the contribution of the lowering of Safety and Health risks. The OSH trainer will enable him to become the protagonist of his awareness of the risks and dangers of his job. Health and Safety risks diminish when OSH training becomes an integral part of the lifelong training of the worker.
