Safety at School

Schoolchildren on the way to school, at sports, in the classroom

School children and students are covered by the Austrian Social Insurance for Occupational Risks. This insurance includes all education-related accidents during class, during breaks, and during educational events such as excursions, skiing-courses, project- and sports-weeks, on the way to school, to the university or to other education-related lectures and back.
This insurance is free of charge for the insured persons.

The prevention of accidents of school children and students represents a major responsibility, since the foundation for future safety awareness is laid in childhood and youth. For school children and students as well as for their instructors we have a large selection of media for safety education: films and posters, pamphlets and comics, check lists, ideas and support for educational programmes.
