Setting Up New Training Services on the Essentials of Occupational Safety and Health 6 November 2017 – 7 December 2017
In recent years a growing number of Employers’ and Business Organizations (EBMOs) have started to, or aim to offer, a range of services in the area of Occupational Safety and Health. To help EBMOs achieve this objective, the Programme for Employers’ Activities of the ITCILO has recently developed an innovative Train the Trainers course with the objective of assisting participating EBMOs in setting up a new (or upgrading existing) training services on essentials of OSH for workers and supervisors.
The training course on EOSH offered by the ITC ILO is targeted to OSH advisers and trainers working for Employers’ and Business Organizations who will be involved in the promotion and delivery of OSH training courses.
EOSH is composed of 27 training modules which cover the essential aspects of Occupational Safety and Health in two parts: General OSH Concepts and Specific Risks.
In order to ensure the best quality and efficiency of the training course, the blended approach had been applied, composed by a 30 hours distance learning component and 4 days face to face workshop in Turin.
Furthermore, after completing the course participants are provided with a ready-to-use EOSH-USB Keys; USB keys give them access to all EOSH materials offline (one tool for combining all training materials – theoretical modules, videos, animations, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes) and a Trainer’s Manual, to support them in organizing effective training courses.
EOSH Training course, co-funded by ITC ILO and DECP ended on December 7, 2017 (Distance Learning 6 November – 1 December; Face to face Workshop 4 December - 7 December). Face to face workshop was coordinated by the ITC ILO and was delivered by leading international experts on OSH.
13 professionals participated in the training from following countries: Barbados, Belize, Pakistan, Republic of Malawi, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey and Uganda.
Participants who successfully completed distance learning component were invited to attend the workshop in Turin, after the workshop final exam had been administered.
Participants who successfully pass the final exam receive the Certificate of Achievement from ITC ILO that enables them to organize and deliver OSH trainings.
