Abstract

This paper discusses the outlook on and understanding of safety among process operator students participating in vocational education and training. The data were collected through an e-survey directed to the process operator students of five Finnish vocational institutions in fall 2019, and 122 students answered the questionnaire. According to the results, the students had a mainly positive outlook on safety. For example, more than half of the respondents were of the opinion that accidents can be prevented. The majority of the students thought safety is an important part of their future work. On-the-job learning and working in industry before the vocational studies seems to relate to students’ outlook on safety.
