Distance-learning Course on Occupational Safety and Health (English)

Becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. The OSH profession calls for a broad-based educational background combined with specialized knowledge of the physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and the social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication), together with the principles and concepts of management. Professionals may therefore need to update their competences accordingly. To meet this need, the International Training Centre (ITC) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) is offering a distance-learning course on OSH delivered via an Internet-based platform. The proposed programme will incorporate the ILO's international experience of OSH and the ITCILO's international training methodology.

The course is intended for OSH trainers and advisers belonging to governmental, employers' and workers' organizations involved promoting OSH within enterprises. It may also be of interest to members of professional/ industrial bodies and training institutions involved in OSH issues, and, above all, managers, supervisors and technical staff responsible for OSH within enterprises.

Occupational Safety and Health Management in the Construction Sector

Deadline for application: 10 April 

Language: English

Occupational Safety and Health Management in the Construction Sector

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 and almost all accidents are preventable, and, like other business issues, occupational safety and health (OSH) can be managed within the enterprise. The ILO adopted the Safety and Health in Construction Convention (No. 167) and its associated Recommendation (No. 175) in 1988. As a complement to these standards, the ILO Code of Practice on Safety and Health in Construction was approved in 1992. In line with the most recent trends in OSH management, the ILO developed the Guidelines on Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems in 2001 (ILO OSH 2001). They apply to all economic sectors and are particularly useful in the construction industry, as they highlight issues relating to subcontracting.

The course is intended for OSH advisers and trainers belonging to government, employers' and workers' organizations who are involved in the promotion of OSH in construction sector enterprises. The programme may also be of interest to members of other professional or industrial bodies and training institutions involved in OSH issues and, above all, managers, supervisors and technical staff responsible for OSH in construction sector enterprises.

Employment Injury Schemes and the Prevention of Occupational Accidents and Diseases

Employment injury schemes are part of the social security apparatus concerned with workers' insurance in the event of occupational accidents and diseases. Traditionally, they provide for compensation and coverage of the medical and rehabilitation costs of injured and sick workers. Increasingly, the mandate of these schemes has come to include the prevention of occupational risks, and world-wide experience and best practice shows that these schemes can play a very important role in achieving this purpose. By disseminating the experience gained by the ILO and facilitating the sharing of successful innovative strategies, the objective of this course is to strengthen the capacity of employment injury institutions to manage occupational accidents and diseases and promote preventive and proactive approaches to OSH.

The course is designed for decision-makers from ministries and institutions responsible for social security and OSH; representatives of employers' and workers' organizations involved in the governance of OSH and social security; technical staff of employment injury institutions; and representatives of training institutions involved in OSH and social security issues.

National Programmes and Systems on Occupational Safety and Health

In pursuit of a safe and healthy working environment for all workers, each country has to develop an effective national OSH system resulting from a collaborative effort between government and the social partners. Such a system will comprise various elements, including legislation, compliance assurance mechanisms and a training and information network. The system needs to be continuously improved by the formulation and implementation of national OSH programmes (medium-term programmes of strategies and activities aiming to improve the OSH situation), as guided by the Promotional Framework for Occupational Safety and Health Convention (No. 187) and Recommendation (No. 197), adopted by the ILO in 2006. Many developing and industrialized countries are now adopting this ILO-inspired strategic approach to OSH, making significant progress in the way they manage OSH at the national level. The International Training Centre of the ILO, in partnership with SafeWork (the ILO programme which promotes OSH), is organizing this course in Turin to acquaint participants with the international guidelines and principles of the ILO, and with experience gained from consolidated and successful national OSH systems and programmes.

Policy-makers, senior officials and advisers from government institutions responsible for the planning, implementation and management of OSH at national level. Workers' and employers' representatives involved in the OSH policy-making process at national level. The programme may also be of interest to researchers, trainers and consultants in this field.

Master in Occupational Safety and Health (2021/2022)

Public and private-sector organizations throughout the world are increasingly concerned with improving occupational safety and health (OSH). In both developed and developing countries, the rapid pace of technological change, combined 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 promote a new safety culture in the workplace. Organizations are increasingly seeking OSH professionals who can catalyze these processes, and it is not always easy to find professionals with the right skills. Becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. The OSH profession calls for a broad-based educational background, including specialized knowledge of the physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and the social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication), together with an understanding of the principles and concepts of management. Accordingly, the University of Turin, Italy, in partnership with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO), the International Labour Office (ILO) and the International Commission of Occupational Health (ICOH), is offering a Master in Occupational Safety and Health. This one-year Master, to be delivered in English, includes an Internet-based distance-learning phase, a face-to-face residential period on the ITCILO's campus in Turin, and another distance-learning phase for the preparation of the dissertation. The proposed Master combines the advantages of the academic knowledge and the international training experience of the organizing partners in the field of OSH. An international approach has been applied to the content and methodology, as well as to the composition of the training team. This Master involves participants from both developing and developed countries, who will thus have an opportunity to share their different experiences. It also features a range of learning situations in which participants can enhance their analytical and problem-solving skills.

The Master has been specifically designed for hygienists, physicians, chemists, engineers, inspectors, practitioners and officers, with a university degree but without a previous specialization in OSH, who are working, or wish to work, as OSH specialists.

Workshop on ILO International Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconioses

The ILO Classification of Radiographs of Pneumoconiosis is an important international standard that is widely used around the world for the early detection of pneumoconiosis, in the medical screening and health surveillance of workers exposed to noxious dusts, and in epidemiological evaluations. The use of the Classification is mandatory in many countries. Use of the ILO Classification may lead to better international comparability of data concerning pneumoconiosis. Some countries have established legal requirements for use of the ILO Classification in the assessment of compensation claims, although the Classification was not originally designed for this purpose. This Workshop offers an excellent opportunity to upgrade your knowledge of the prevention of occupational respiratory diseases and improve your skills in using the ILO Classification effectively. You will have an opportunity to test your skills by making individual readings of subject films from the ILO training materials. To evaluate the results of your readings, ILO experts will review the classification of these subject films with you .

Radiologists; occupational physicians in public organizations and private enterprises involved in screening and surveillance; researchers and university professors of medical radiology.
