Safety lessons for pupils.

STUDENTS will be taught an extensive health and safety module in a pilot project next month.

The scheme will be rolled out in the South East and Western regions. Pupils will be learn about bullying, risk assessment and communications.

It is aimed at transition year and applied Leaving Cert vocational students.

A Health and Safety Authority handbook will be involved in preparing the lessons.
