Abstract: Accidental injuries are the leading cause of deaths among children in the western world. Research in various countries indicates that 10 to 25 percent of school-aged children injuries occur in (and around) school environment. However, this reality has not received the attention it deserves in Greece, where the absence of mechanisms for information management of school accidents is more than obvious. The main purpose of our research is to present the analysis and development of a School Accidents Reporting Information System (SARIS) and to evaluate the results of its pilot implementation in Secondary Schools in Greece. Moreover, our scope is to highlight SARIS importance in the achievement of injury prevention and health promotion objectives and to make propositions for its deployment and utilization in the context of public health and safety prevention policies.
