Tiivistelmä

Finnish vocational education and training (VET) providers face major challenges due to educational reform, economic pressures and a decrease in student numbers. This places an occupational burden on employees that may harm their health. Current school safety models cover occupational health and safety (OHS) issues inade-quately. However, VET providers have a variety of procedures to manage OHS. Hence, a management model is needed that highlights the organisational measures targeting OHS improvements. The aim of this study is to construct a conceptual model for managing the OHS of VET providers. Six large VET providers participated in the study. The model was constructed based on the OHS requirements and VET providers’ needs, and it can be utilised in the educational sector to improve OHS management and related awareness. The model can be integrated into VET providers’ existing OHS practices and management systems.
