Along with her associates Mrs Irina Kacian Ivetić, Mrs Lada Crnobori and Mrs Tamara Krajnović, the College of Occupational Safety and Health´s Dean Mrs Liljana Dolšak met with Mrs Snježana Štefok of the Institute for the Advancement of Safety at Work on September 16, 2015 and discussed further cooperation between the two institutions. The commitment to cooperate in various areas has been stated by both sides at a previous meeting between Dean Mrs Liljana Dolšak and Institute Director, Mr Vitomir Begović, with this meeting a further step toward specific future project cooperation. It is of mutual intent to pursue a partnership in EU-funded projects such as the Erasmus+ program, and the possibility of preparing a mutual specific project proposal and call application at the beginning of next year has been considered. There are various possible project ideas, with the College of Occupational Safety and Health´s positive experience as a partner in the ongoing project within the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships program, with Finnish partners as project coordinators. The current results of the project were presented by Mrs Kacian Ivetić, having pointed out the positive experiences in cooperation with the Finnish, Estonian as well as the second Croatian partner, the Bedekovčina High School. This project can serve as an example for formulating future mutual project proposals. The possibilites for cooperation between the College and the Institute include online courses in the field of work safety, so organizing webinars was also discussed.
College of Occupational Safety and Health´s Erasmus Coordinator Mrs Lada Crnobori participated at the Open University of Cyprus´ Erasmus staff week from June 22 – 26, 2015 in Nicosia, Cyprus. The Open Universityof Cyprus is an Erasmus partner to the College of Occupational Safety and Health. Participants from various European Union countries presented their respective institutions of higher education, negotiated potential future cooperation and participated in various presentations, lectures and workshops. It is interesting to note that all of the OUC´s study programs are performed fully and exclusively online. It is one of three Cyprus´ public universities, with a large international student base, due to its many courses offered in English. Very few of OUC´s students get to visit the building in the photograph where their University is based, however its many varied services and offices look just like their counterparts in ´classic´ universities. Some of the programs which might interest the College of Occupational Safety and Health´s students include the studies of Risk Management, Public Health Management, Environmental Protection and Information Systems Protection.

Dean of the College of Occupational Safety and Health Mrs Liljana Dolšak´s lecture topic was Dangers, hazards and strain at work, while Mrs Irina Kacian Ivetić´s topic was Safety signs and their application.
