The problem of young workers'safety culture is important because of the unfavorable demographic trend occurring in the European Union and determinants of competitiveness and innovativeness of the economy. The paper presents the concept and the importance of safety culture and goals of the research program, the aim of which is the construction and verification of the model based on the transfer of knowledge regarding the safety and methods of its implementation.Safety culture is a derivative of the organizational culture and its emanation. During the preliminary research, the key factor affecting the occupational safety was identified. This factor is young workers safety culture or safety culture present in firms they work for.Man is effective only if in addition to the knowledge and skills have adequate habits. Habits developed in the area of occupational safety can greatly contribute to its improvement. Shaping habits should be systematically rather than spontaneously. Its practical implementation would have a major impact not only on the quality of teaching students, but also on the teachers professional development (teacher training center as the center forming positive habits) and the management of educational administration (board of education as a center for development of positive habits headmasters).In the light of recent discoveries in the field of neurology, human behavior and life decisions are not only determined by the knowledge and competence. The technology that is used to teach, plays a secondary role and is used rather to increase the decision makers ambition than to increase the efficiency of the learning process.There are a lot of ways to increase the effectiveness of education. One of them is widely understood digitization, which provides solutions such as e-books, interactive whiteboards, gamification (use to study the mechanisms of the game). The main goal of this type of action is to improve the knowledge and skills of school students.It is assumed that the results of the project will be used by vocational schools and companies in order to increase the effectiveness of the education and development of young professionals pro safe behavior in the workplace. It can be assumed that the results of the project will be implemented in at least 20 vocational schools educating 3,000 future employees. Within one year of the completion of the project may be able to increase the frequency of making pro safe behavior among young workers associated with cooperating schools.
