Safety with a smile
Napo is the hero in a series of animated films, co-produced by a small group of European organisations, to introduce important workplace safety and health topics in a memorable, light-hearted way. The likeable character symbolises an employee who could be working in any industry or sector. His stories have an educational value; they may provoke questions and stimulate debate on specific aspects of safety and health at work. The Napo films are language free, so that people of all backgrounds and cultures can understand and identify with the character, from young employees to senior management... alike. In the films, Napo often finds himself the victim of common situations over which he has no control, highlighting the hazards that can exist in the workplace. But he can identify hazards and risks and provide practical solutions or make suggestions to improve safety and work organisation. In this sense he is an ideal employee as he is actively involved in the risk assessment process.
