Master in Occupational safety and health

The University of Turin, Italy, in partnership with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO), the International Labour Office(ILO) and the International Commission of Occupational Health (ICOH) is offering a Master course in Occupational Safety and Health. This one-year programme, to be held in English, includes an Internet-based distance learning phase, a face-to-face residential period on the ITC/ILO's campus in Turin followed by another distance phase for the preparation of the dissertation. The proposed programme combines the advantages of the academic experience and the international training experience in OSH of the organizing partners. An international approach has been applied to the contents, the methodology development as well as to the composition of the training team. This programme involves participants from both developing and developed countries, who will thus have an opportunity to share their different experiences. Furthermore, it also offers a range of learning situations in which participants can enhance their analytical and problem solving skills.

Who are we?

International Training Centre of the ILO

In 1965, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Italian Government established the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO) in Turin, Italy. The Centre is committed to assisting countries with their social development. Through learning and training, the Centre develops human resources and institutional capacity in pursuit of the ILO's primary goal of decent work for all men and women.

To assist countries with their social and economic development, besides training proper, the Centre provides technical support and advisory services. It assembles, packages and disseminates the best thinking and practice concerning the world of work from the ILO and elsewhere.

Over the years, more that 200,000 participants from 185 countries have received training in one of the following areas:

  • international labour standards and human rights
  • employment and skills development
  • enterprise development
  • social protection
  • employers' activities
  • workers' activities
  • social dialogue
  • management of development
  • distance education and learning technology.

Social Protection, Governance and Tripartism Programme

The Social Protection, Governance and Tripartism Programme promotes the ILO strategic objective of enhancing the coverage and effectiveness of social protection for all through capacity-building. It offers different training programmes on:

  • social security schemes and social protection floors
  • labour relations and disputes resolution
  • migrant workers
  • labour administration and labour inspection
  • occupational safety and health (OSH).

The OSH training courses (both in Turin and in beneficiary countries) for institutional representatives are mainly on:

  • formulating national OSH policy and strategies
  • strengthening national government departments
  • developing employers and workers organizations' OSH capacity.

Through this partnership with the University of Turin, we hope to create new learning opportunities for OSH practitioners.
