Distance-learning course on occupational safety and health

3 February–18 July 2020
The course is available in English

The rapid pace of technological change, together with the persistence of unsafe or environmentally hazardous working conditions, has served to focus attention on the need to create safe, healthy working environments and to promote a new safety culture in the workplace. In common with other business issues, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) can be managed within the individual enterprise. Organizations are increasingly seeking OSH professionals who can catalyse these processes, and it is not always easy to find professionals with the right skills. To meet this need, the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO) is offering a distance-learning course on OSH delivered through an Internet-based platform. The proposed programme will incorporate the ILO's international experience of OSH and the methodology derived from the ITCILO's international training experience.
