This one year EU funded project had the main objective to strengthen solidarity between teacher unions in Europe in support of maintaining and promoting healthy and safe working conditions. The aim was to promote the well-being and safety of teachers and other education employees as prerequisites for quality education.

This project focused on the implications of the economic crisis on occupational health and safety in the education sector. It followed an empirical approach and collected data in an online survey and interviews. From this evidence base, practical guidelines were developed to promote health and safety in the education sector in times of crisis.
