Training package in occupational safety and health for the construction industry

Instructional material | 01 June 2010
This digital training package - ILO Construction Occupational Safety and Health (OS&H) - aims to address the shortage of comprehensive construction safety training materials in the public domain.

ILO Construction OS&H will provide tutors with the materials required to plan, create and deliver a construction safety and health course built to the needs of the participants. The information is structured in a highly flexible, modular format which will enable its use in varied training scenarios: eg for one-day seminars, night classes or week long courses.

The package is relevant to a global audience and is designed to be applicable in differing political, cultural, and legal environments. It is targeted at four main construction sector actors: workers, clients, contractors and design and project management teams.

Four model courses are provided - one for each of these groups - comprising thematised modules, PowerPoint resources, visual materials, toolbox briefings and an extensive knowledge base for further reference. The model courses illustrate how elements can be taken from the Construction OS&H resources to make a bespoke training course.
