||The objective of this literature survey was to examine whether occupational safety and health (OSH) training has a beneficial effect on workers. Ten bibliographic databases were searched for pre-post randomized trial studies published in journals between 1996 and November 2007. Training interventions were included if they were delivered to workers and were concerned with primary prevention of occupational illness or injury. The methodological quality of each relevant study was assessed and data was extracted. The impacts of OSH training in each study were summarized by calculating the standardized mean differences. Twenty-two studies met the relevance criteria of the review. They involved a variety of study populations, occupational hazards and types of training. Strong evidence was found for the effectiveness of training on worker OSH behaviours, but insufficient evidence was found of its effectiveness on health. Implications of these findings are discussed.
