Abstract To underpin occupational safety and health (OSH) education in schools and colleges, it is necessary to formalise it in curriculum requirements. This report reviews how the Member States are including OSH and risk education in their national curricula. It shows that there is considerable progress and activity in this respect at both primary and secondary education levels in terms of both implemented and planned actions in the Member States. Actions to include OSH in education at the curriculum level include: statutory requirements; voluntary curricula; guidelines and resources to support the statutory requirements and voluntary curricula; formal recommendations; national guidance and resources in cases where no curricula have been set; and promotional campaigns to support the above.
