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.

Distance learning course on Occupational Safety and Health 2
Becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. The OSH profession calls for a broad-based educational background combined with specialized knowledge in physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication) together with the principles and concepts of management. Many professionals require updating their competences in line with this situation. The International Training Centre (ITC) of the International Labour Organization (ILO) is offering a distance learning course on OSH delivered through an Internet-based platform to satisfy this need. The proposed programme will incorporate the international ILO experience on OSH and the ITCILO's international training experience applied to the methodology.
The course is aimed at trainers and advisers in OSH belonging to governmental, employers' and workers' organizations involved in the promotion of OSH within enterprises. The programme may also be of interest to other people from professional or industrial bodies, training institutions involved in OSH issues and, above all, managers, supervisors and technical staff in charge of OSH within enterprises.

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.

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.
