Mission statement:
The safety and health of teachers is a priority of ETUCE. ETUCE believes a school should be a safe, healthy and propitious place for teaching and learning. Schools are the workplace of teachers, but first and foremost they are educational institutions for young students. Occupational health and safety problems can thus be harmful not only for the workforce (teachers and other staff in education), but can indirectly harm the pupils and put at risk the quality and efficiency of the education provided. In its work, ETUCE seeks to raise awareness, increase knowledge and facilitate exchange of experience and good practices on teachers' safety and health issues among its member organisations.
Our Campaign Pledge:

The work that the ETUCE is carrying out at present in the field of Health and Safety (prevention of teachers' work-related stress and of violence in education) is directly linked to the Campaign. The campaign will be present in various ETUCE seminars and conferences. We would be happy to provide EU-OSHA with the good practices collected in the course of the project Teacher trade unions in solidarity for healthy and safe workplaces in the economic crisis and to contribute with the practical recommendations on the promotion of healthy and safe working conditions in education in times of the economic crisis; These have been developed in the course of  2013 and will be presented for adoption to the ETUCE Committee in April 2014. They wish to provide teacher unions in Europe and their affiliated teachers and education employees with concrete guidelines on how to promote healthy and safe working conditions, which proves to be especially a challenge in times of crisis. They aim to assist the teacher unions and their affiliated teachers in developing concrete strategies and actions to increase the awareness on the importance of the provision of healthy and safe working conditions in schools among the relevant stakeholders. Essentially, these recommendations seek to help teacher unions to enhance and maintain decent and quality working conditions in the education sector also in times of austerity, for the ultimate goal of high quality education.
