Erasmus Policy Statement (Overall Strategy)
The mission of the College of Occupational Safety and Health is to develop, modernize and internationalize the tradition of education of safety engineers and to achieve and maintain excellence in every field of education, from its core business ta the level of professional scientific and specialist study to external institutional and non-institutional forms of lifelong education for the protection of persons, property and environment. The College has two study programs: Professional study of safety and Specialist graduate professional study of safety.
The strategy of the College is to popularize the occupation due to the small number of registered unemployed engineers of safety, improve cooperation with vocational associations, permanently monitor the careers of graduates, stay involved in the work of international associations and EU programs for lifelong learning, improve cooperation with related educational institutions in Croatia and abroad, create conditions for better mobility of teachers and students. Taking into consideration the technical orientation of our studies, through international cooperation the College can achieve better coherence and compliance with all the new standards which are extremely dynamic in this area. The aim of international cooperation is to connect with related institutions abroad in order to exchange experiences, encourage cooperation among professors and students, mobility for students, teachers and staff, as well as participation in seminars, workshops and joint cooperation projects.
In 2013, the College organized the 20th World Congress on CBRNe Science & Consequence Management (CSCM) in Cavtat in co-organization with two scientific and academic institutions: OSDIFE from Italy and the Faculty of Textile Technology, University of Zagreb. The College will also organize the 21st CSCM congress to be held in June 2014 in Tbilisi, Georgia. From 2006 to 2012, together with the Croatian Association of Engineers of Safety, the College organized seven scientific-professional conferences Management and Safety with international participation. The College has also participated in the following international conferences: Social Reactions to Contemporary Forms of Compromising Security (Bosnia-Herzegovina 2012), Risk and Safety Engineering (Serbia 2012&2013), 2nd International Conference ZEB (Montenegro 2013), 1st International Conference on Cooperation in Higher Education within EURAS (Turkey 2013), Meeting of the working group on the project proposal Card Safety in the Field of Lifting (Finland 2013).
The College is actively involved in the work of international associations ENETOSH and EURAS. Within ENETOSH, the College organized the kick-off meeting for the area of the South-East Europe with 44 participants from 22 countries, in April 2012. The meeting was organized with support of EU-OSHA with the aim of raising awareness about the importance of education and training in occupational safety and health at all levels of the education system. The College developed cooperation with several EU and non-EU institutions through bilateral agreements: University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; Technical College in Novi Sad, Serbia; V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine; Penza State Technological University, Russia; Technical University of Gabrovo in Bulgaria, University of Tuzla, Bosnia-Herzegovina, University of Applied Sciences in Kyamk, Finland.
The choice of partners is made among countries relying on international conventions and norms in the field of occupational safety and health and is based on the correspondence of study programs.
The mobility activities related to the 1st and 2nd study cycle for students, academic and non-academic staff as well as participation in EU projects will be implemented through participation in Erasmus+. The aim of mobility is to obtain additional experience, knowledge and skills that students will be able to apply when returning to an environment where they want to work. At the College, work placement over a period of three months is required and a possibility for traineeship in another country would provide added value to students who had the opportunity to work and learn in a completely new environment. With future cooperation in mind, there are agreements with Turkey and Slovenia concerning work placement. The objective of international cooperation is the constant training of teachers in order to keep up with the latest measures and regulations that this profession requires, while employed staff also needs to be encouraged to further network among colleagues in the EU and implement new programs and potential projects. The College intends to enhance mobility and has already invested in administrative support in order to work towards the promotion of mobility, the signing of bilateral agreements, partner search and promotion of programs in general. The Colleges intention is to participate in joint master degree projects.
The College conducts a professional undergraduate program, with duration of 3 years, and a specialized study program, with duration of 2 years, and is fully engaged in the Bologna process (Diploma Supplement for all graduates). These studies require constant collaboration, comparison and information in relation to all that is happening in the community in which it operates. In Croatia, this is the only course of study of its kind and the focus on cooperation and development of study together with the academic community in the EU and non-EU is one of the most important factors of development, modernization and specialization of competencies, knowledge and skills. The awareness of the need for connectivity has led the College to establish collaboration with partners from abroad in order to be able to transfer and improve knowledge within the profession. In addition to the theoretical part of the study, there is mandatory practical training.
Within the EU Programs, the College has participated as partner in several tenders with the aim of contributing to build capacities, competencies and a networking system. As a member of the EURAS association, the idea is to build a network in the region of Eurasia. The College is participating as partner in the meetings of the working group with Finnish and Estonian partners for the "Safety Card in the Field of Lifting" project to be funded by EU funds. The aim of the project is to harmonize levels of competence, elaborate models of positive competition in the context of personal employee training and provide certification for employees. The College is a part of a consortium, including Italy, Slovenia and Albania, in the project IPA CBC 2007-2013, Safety@Work Adriatic Network S.W.A.N. - pending response. All this would not have been possible without the cooperation, the strong relationship and exchange of experience with institutional partners, organizations, associations and other entities in the community.
The mission of the College will be realized in cooperation with related institutions in Europe and worldwide, as well as with professional associations and the private sector. Through this multilateral cooperation in the field of safety, the College intends to develop competencies within its study programs and to provide students with possibilities for specialization and subsequent employment.
The College intends to give its students a solid foundation that will serve for further development and activation of new research in the field of occupational safety at national and international level, in order to contribute to the promotion of individual and collective responsibility.
The intent is to maintain the quality of the College, while constantly exploring new models of improvement, including quality improvements in accordance with the requirements and standards required in the international market. The vision of the College of Occupational Safety and Health is to maintain the acquired reputation as an institution of higher education with years of tradition as well as the development of study programs according to the labor market demands in Croatia and Europe, according to the regulations of the Republic of Croatia and international guidelines and suggestions.
The adoption of European standards in the field of occupational safety and health is essential for balancing competencies that professionals need to have in order to perform these tasks in Croatia and in the labor market in Europe and worldwide. Student mobility and cooperation at international level is important in order to exchange best practices in the sector. Given the close connection that a safety expert has to have with the business sector and the practical sector in which they operate, it is essential to connect and synchronize labor needs with specific competencies required. New techniques and new practices are constantly being adjusted for within the study program at the College. Regional cooperation is one of the most important objectives of the College which is intent to realize it through this Program in the field of joint degrees with regional countries and beyond, and expectations for the development of joint master degrees are high. So far, the College has been a partner in the consortium for EU projects tender. The intention is to create joint master degrees with other countries, in particular with the Higher School of Labor Safety Management in Katowice, Poland. The College intends to participate on Erasmus+ projects in the field of occupational safety and health and so far the principles of cooperation have been agreed with Bulgaria, Finland and Poland. The participation in Erasmus+ will give the College the ability to connect with other similar institutions and with the business sector in the EU and beyond in the hope of implementing joint projects in order to exchange knowledge and experience, and research new measures and procedures within the profession.
