The course is available in English

Construction is one of the most dangerous occupations. One in six fatal accidents at work occurs on a construction site, and each year at least 60,000 fatal accidents occur on construction sites around the world. Yet the causes of accidents are well known, almost all accidents are preventable and, in common with other business issues, occupational safety and health (OSH) can be managed at the enterprise level. The International Training Centre of the ILO, in collaboration with LABADMIN/OSH (the ILO programme promoting OSH), is running this course in Turin on the principles of OSH management for construction sector enterprises, with the general purpose of exposing participants to the ILO's international experience and providing guidelines.
