Setting up new training services in Georgian Employers' Association (GEA)

The course is available in English

This training of trainers (ToT) on Essentials in Occupational Safety and Health (EOSH) has been developed by the Employers’ Activities Programme of the ITCILO and will be rolled for the Georgian Employers’ Association (GEA), with the support of the ILO and the Danish International Development Agency project. The ToT is built on the EOSH package, which offers a flexible and multi-tool approach that cuts across several OSH issues applicable to different sectors of activities and different audiences. The ToT will certify participants to deliver sessions on EOSH as part of the training services of the GEA, thus supporting the organisation in expanding its services and building its position as OSH training provider.

This tailor-made course is available upon request and may be customized for local, national, and international organizations. Contact us to learn more.
