- Αυγ 20, 2018
As the STOP ASD HAZARDS project is successfully ongoing, a Manual of Good Practices for the Prevention of Labor Risks and Occupational Health of ASD people has been developed by all partner countries, which aims at improving the professional's knowledge on how to prevent risks and take care of the ASD worker's well-being.
The synthesis document is a result of the information obtained by each of the partner organizations using internal and external sources in order to know the "status quo" of the situation of the autistic group and analyse whether in each country there was some kind of measure or program aimed at preventing occupational risks. Moreover, the manual contains a description of success stories, that is cases which can be presented as role models related to the prevention of occupational risks and job placement of adults with autism.
The objectives of the manual include analyzing the good practices carried out in each country participating in the project for the prevention of occupational risks, the improvement of employability and the labor insertion of the autistic collective, preparing a report of conclusions taking into consideration the information obtained by the different partners and drafting a series of recommendations aimed at improving both the labor protection of the autistic collective.
Following, each partner will make an effective dissemination of the Manual of Good Practices in order that the different stakeholders of the project can study it and start up the necessary actions to fulfil the objectives of the same.
This project, framed in the Erasmus+ program, was approved by the Spanish Service for the Internationalization of Education, under the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
