DITMEP presents its e-learning platform for training in Risk Prevention

The project, funded by the European Union through the ERASMUS+ program, has resulted in a complete modular training course on occupational risk prevention.

The crisis caused by the recent COVID-19 pandemic has posed new challenges to education and training systems in terms of online learning, a necessary challenge to ensure inclusive and quality digital literacy. The digital modernization and transformation of education is now a key issue at the European level, especially for vocational training programs in the manufacturing sector, which have so far been based on face-to-face events and industry-related workshops. In this context, the DITMEP project (Digital Tools for Manufacturing training and Education Programmes) was born, with the aim of generating new digital skills in methodologies for trainers and students in industrial environments through e-learning, gamification and augmented reality experiences.

As the project comes to an end, DITMEP presents the results of two years of research. Among them, the development of an e-learning platform that includes a comprehensive modular training course on occupational risk prevention, the development of various playful learning approaches and the implementation of an augmented reality application stand out. This training, which is already openly available to anyone who wants to use it, has versions in English, Spanish, German, and Portuguese. It also includes two blocks (General Risks and Specific Risks in Composite Materials Manufacturing) with different modules covering topics such as "Basic Concepts of Safety and Health" or "Risks Related to the Use of Chemical Products", among others.

On the other hand, the Augmented Reality application, which can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store, focuses on two modules: "Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Safety Clothing" and "Signaling a Polyester Workshop". Through this application, students will have to choose the correct protective equipment in a fiber composite workshop, which must be used in a specific area (for instance, the warehouse or mixing area) and select the appropriate signals to be displayed at the entrance to a specific area.

DITMEP ('Digital Tools for Manufacturing training and Education Programmes')

The DITMEP consortium is composed of 5 partners from 3 European Union countries: (Germany, Spain, and Portugal), which have been selected considering the different aspects of the development of these training courses. As a result, partners include representatives from various sectors, such as training centers, universities, and certification companies.

The project, which began in May 2021, will present its final results at a conference in Hamburg, Germany.

The final results of the DITMEP are available on the official project'website
