Use NAPO’s films to promote health and safety in your business!

Napo is the hero of a series of animated films co-produced by a small group of European organizations.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) based in Bilbao, Spain has funded the creation of a website to enable SMEs and organizations in general to use Napo’s films to raise awareness workers for safer, healthier and better workplaces.

The films are not intended to cover specific topics in depth, nor are they educational in nature. However, the cheerful way in which safety and health issues are presented is easier to remember and can trigger discussions around these issues. The likable character embodies a worker who could be employed in any industry or field.

It is also suitable for use in vocational training courses. The films show the risks that can occur, as well as the measures taken to mitigate these risks.

EEN Cyprus, as an OSH Ambassador for increasing awareness of small medium sized enterprises in matters of occupational safety and health, encourages you to watch the films below.

  1. Professional Drivers – Overload
  2. Robotic technologies – Automation
  3. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)
  4. Basic introduction to health and safety signs and symbols
  5. Working at height
  6. Working under hot conditions
  7. Respiratory problems and dust explosions

That is why identifying risks and taking timely measures has multiple benefits, such as:

  • Improving productivity by reducing staff sickness absence
  • Reducing health care costs, compensations, etc.
  • Decreasing time and costs for repairing damaged machines and training replacement personnel
  •  Retaining older workers in the labor market
  • Enhancing the efficiency of work methods and technologies
  • Lowering costs for the state’s economy, as workers will not need social and financial support along with medical care.

Therefore, good occupational safety and health management is beneficial for business.

Invest in prevention!
