90 EVALUATION OF THE EUREVALUATION OF THE EUROPEAN STRATEGY ON SAFETY AND HEALTH AT WORK 2007-201290furong>theong>r refinements, will be rolled-out in 11 countries as part ong>ofong> a step-wisepromotion. 95EU-OSHA has thus not only performed ong>theong> task requested in ong>theong> European ong>strategyong>but has kept a continuous focus on this area throughout ong>theong> ong>strategyong> period and hasworked as a vehicle for information gaong>theong>ring and sharing ong>ofong> experience amongMember States and ong>theong> actors involved.Member State actionsThe 2009 EU-OSHA report on OSH in ong>theong> school curriculum (requirements andactivities in ong>theong> EU Member States) states that implementation activities in ong>theong>Member States are continuing, although at different rates across Member Statesand education levels. On an overall level, ong>theong> report concludes that: "MemberStates are including OSH and risk education in ong>theong>ir national curricula. The reportshows that ong>theong>re is considerable progress and activity in this respect at bothprimary and secondary education levels in terms ong>ofong> both implemented and plannedactions in ong>theong> Member States". 96In 2009 EU-OSHA also issued ong>theong> report 'Preventing risks to young workers:policy, programmes and workplace practices', which provides examples ong>ofong> ong>theong>integration ong>ofong> OSH aspects into vocational and occupational training policies in 25EU Member States. The report contains a summary ong>ofong> ong>theong> legislative practices ineach ong>ofong> ong>theong>se 25 Member States (Bulgaria and Romania are not included).The EU-OSHA report on mainstreaming ong>ofong> occupational safety and health inuniversity education, ong>theong> report presents cases demonstrating how OSH has beenincluded in university-level education in 14 Member States and ong>theong> US. A fewcases point to OSH/risk education being truly embedded within ong>theong> curriculum ong>ofong>individual courses. Furong>theong>r, it argues that ong>theong>re are many "challenges to integratingOSH into university-level education … but [that] steps are being taken tomainstream OSH into university education in a variety ong>ofong> disciplines and in avariety ong>ofong> ways." 97The data used to produce ong>theong> above mentioned reports is mainly from 2006 andong>theong>refore ong>theong> reports do not reflect any progress made or ong>theong> impact ong>ofong> ong>theong>European ong>strategyong> on actions taken at Member State level since that time. For thisreason it is not possible on ong>theong> basis ong>ofong> ong>theong> reports to determine what actions havebeen taken by ong>theong> Member States during ong>theong> ong>strategyong> period and to which effect.However, ong>theong> reports clearly indicate that Member States were already working inthis area before ong>theong> adoption ong>ofong> ong>theong> European ong>strategyong>.95 The resources are published at http://www.napong>ofong>ilm.net/en/napo-for-teachers.
