Swedish term or phrase:själv hjälper till genom tidiga egna insatser
Context: Alarm operators needed to have basic training with continued educational opportunities in order to be able to efficiently answer emergency calls.
Sådan utbildning kostar pengar men lönar sig i längden eftersom samhällets totalkostnader för olyckor och skador kommer att bli lägre om den enskilde själv tar ett större ansvar och "själv hjälper till genom tidiga egna insatser."
I am having troubles wording the last part of the sentence. Suggestions please!
Thanks to all! They were all good suggestions, but Nina's fit in best with the rest of the article.
But don't worry there will be more of this coming up!
