Becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. The OSH profession calls for a broad-based educational background combined with specialized knowledge in physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication) together with the principles and concepts of management. Many professionals require updating their competences in line with this situation. The International Training Centre (ITC) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) is offering a distance learning course on OSH delivered through an Internet based platform to satisfy this need. The proposed programme will incorporate the international ILO experience on OSH and the ITC-ILO's international training experience applied to the methodology.
