What does the abbreviation “sam” mean?
Initially, the abbreviation sam stood for “S”-secova “A”-udiovisual “M”itarbeiter (employee) training course.
Since the training possibility with sam® now only represents a small, but very important sub-area of the entire functional scope of sam®, we no longer focus on this explanation (…besides it sounds a bit outdated).
If you like, you can also translate sam® with “S”-ecova “A”-rbeitsschutz (occupational safety) “M”-anagement. Although this also does not hit the nail on the head.
“S”-afety “A”-lways “M”-atter is another possibility to translate sam®.
Btw, there is a small, sympathetic learning guide that guides the employee through most of the instructions and training courses.
Guess what’s the name of this little guy? – Exactly: Sammy ?
