“School work, safety and spot checks”

Safety in vocational training and education courses – three- or four-year, known as Iefp courses – is on the table of the VI Council Commission under the chairmanship of Giuseppe Sibau (Progetto Fvg / Ar) in the presence of the Regional Councilor for Labor, Alessia Rosolen, through hearings of representatives of the main sectors: education, business, trade union. Not without an initial controversy by Furio Honsell (Open Fvg), who complained that student representatives were not involved.

Gabriele De Simone, president of the Temporary Association of Companies (Ati) of Friuli Venezia Giulia called EffePi-Professional Training, “in the 13 vocational training institutes for 4,500 students, 310 courses organized each year, 22 types of path reference diploma for 62 profiles”.

“At the beginning of the period – explains Simone – there are medical examinations for members; from the second year onwards, they start a limited internship activity, which gradually increases over the remaining three years. Just before any practical activity, a safety course is organized “. In addition, all the teachers are in charge, the company that employs the students has to train and everything that is done is recorded every day.

Simone then went on to highlight the functionality of the courses and explained that “in the six months following graduation, the employment rate of students is 94%. Our action also aims to reduce early school exchanges. “

A specific question from Honsell as to which companies where the double paths are implemented are chosen, whether they are certified from the point of view of safety at work and whether it is expected to accompany them on a path of improvement, if any. Son was informed about his rights by the workers, the President of EffePi replied: “We want to create informed and competent workers first; knowing how to do it, but also knowing how it is, is our skill. What the As far as company certifications are concerned, it concerns what the company produces. Instead, we ask that the right protection for young people is guaranteed during their internship.

On behalf of the CISL, Alberto Monticco has expressed himself in terms of quality path of training young people in the workplace and in what will one day be their profession. However, it is different to talk about safety in the workplace for everyone, where we in Italy still have an average of three deaths per day, 32 fatal accidents in Fvg in 2021.

“A topic that is very dear to us,” said Adriano Luci, President of Confindustria Udine, who then highlighted the aspect of fatality as well as that of “Lack of general culture and security, as citizens, as workers and as Entrepreneur, though much has been done by Confindustria Fvg to make it a primary material ”.

Ugo Previti, of Uil, has drafted a protocol proposal between Confindustria, unions and training bodies, so that the student entering the company is followed by a workers’ representative who certifies and increases their safe operation.

For Mauro Capozzella (M5S), “when the student repeats the gestures he has observed, his attention goes entirely to the task being done, this inevitably reduces the perception of the surrounding risk. If it “in high-risk places, the boy is exposed to a greater danger. Accidents happen for those experts, for whom students the danger is even greater and therefore needs more attention”.

“In Fvg,” Simone replied, “there are no high-risk companies. As far as training is concerned, the path that has been developed over the three years is all based on safety and practical activity, so that the young man is not unprepared. is when he enters the company “.

“There are situations that should not be exploited,” stressed Franco Mattiussi (FI), after which “the process of making companies is always too simple. He has personally experienced cases of young people who were not sufficiently prepared, not pay close attention to what they have done., superficially in their behavior. Students also learn what their responsibilities are in a company. ”Agree with Honsell on auditing the boys with an upcoming committee meeting to find out what they like to see better.

Miss opportunity, however, for Chiara Da Giau (Pd) to understand what training bodies do to avoid situations where companies do not meet the quality criteria sufficiently. As for the shortcomings of young people, if they have not developed an awareness of occupational safety, it is the duty of the employer to train them and, if necessary, to follow them more closely, to interfere with the institution and beyond Behavior to inform.

“I do not think our companies are exploiting young people,” said Stefano Turchet (Lega). “Due to the quality of the Iefp courses, it is possible to study subjects such as geography, history, mathematics and English in order to enhance the students from all angles. It is important to continue to support the dual system and young people enable. to train and learn in alternative ways to traditional “.

“Let us not forget,” concluded Commissioner Rosolen, “that the boy who enters the company is followed by both a tutor from the training institute and a company. And many of our practices have become a point of reference and tools for at national level. Level .. Behind each training are punctual checks.It is true that these are often young people who have left school and see the Iefp courses as an opportunity to support themselves, but even rarely are there those who resume their studies. enroll in a college or maybe even a university. “
