Training package on development of a national programme of occupational safety and health

This training package is intended to support training activities aimed at promoting the ILO’s strategic approach to occupational safety and health (OSH). It provides inputs for the development of a National OSH Programme, as well as for the drawing up of a National OSH Policy and a National OSH Profile.

Module 0 is for the exclusive use of the trainer. It puts tools in his/her hands for the organizing of various training activities and for the delivery of training sessions.

Modules 1, 2, 3 and 4 are for the trainees. They can be used as a handbook to supplement the delivery of training sessions, and to expand their knowledge before or after the training activities. While planned primarily as teaching aids, they can also be used as reference materials by specialists or by tripartite decision makers who are responsible for national governance of OSH.

This training package has been established by the International Training Centre of the ILO in Turin and in conjunction with the "Plan safe, plan healthy: Guidelines for developing national programmes on occupational safety and health".

The Centre will organize a "National programmes and systems of occupational safety and health" training course later this year, which is aimed at strengthening the capacity of planning, developing and governing the national efforts to improve OSH.

Both the training package and the guide were produced under the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) funded project "Linking safety and health at work to sustainable economic development: from theory and platitudes to conviction and action".
