Portrait of Napo

It is never too early to introduce students to the basic concepts that, for adults, come under the umbrella of occupational safety and health (OSH).

Napo is a charming character who can help students think about, understand and act on safety issues. To find out more, click here: Napo and friends. There is a wide range of Napo films, so please feel free to explore and use them in your own classes.

Some of the basic safety concepts covered in these lessons link to the curriculum already being taught. The Napo for Teachers resource presents a range of great ideas that can be used to help integrate safety concepts into lessons. It can be used for a single lesson or as part of a wider project. Although it links to other subjects, the main objective is to use the engaging Napo films to teach students how to take care of themselves and each other, and recognise hazards.

For each lesson, an overview of the learning objectives, details of potential activities and the resources required are provided. With these lessons, students will discover how to recognise the various hazards that might put them and their friends in danger, and they will develop the skills of working together to put some of the learning into practice.

For more information on basic safety and health topics, check out the help sheets available in the resource library.
