International Occupational Safety and Health Knowledge Network

Occupational safety and health (OSH) is an area where good practices in different contexts could be shared and one that could also be given higher priority in international cooperation.

Guy Ryder, ILO Director-General
Message on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, 28 April 2013
Enhancing OSH knowledge and information networking activities is a strategic objective of the ILO. A key role is to enrich the worldwide dialogue on prevention through various means and activities aiming together at strengthening and actively supporting the contribution of knowledge in OSH to the large societal debates on the topic. The Collaboration Network, formerly known as the network of CIS National and Collaborating Centres, provides a basis for collaboration among OSH agencies, institutions and organizations.
