Trends in training
Much is said about the importance of training to the economy, but there is very little hard information about what is actually happening in the training market - what are the key issues, what changes are taking place, what skills do trainers need? To serve its members, the Institute of Personnel and Development (IPD) needs to know as much as possible about what is happening in the areas in which it works. People working in training, whether full-time or part-time, account for a good proportion of the Institute's membership. The IPD therefore recently conducted a survey which among other things looked at expenditure and training budgets, the focus of training, changing training methods, the impact of training on performance and how the training business is evolving. The results of the first survey, carried out among 800 training managers, are also presented.

Gathering data on culture and health to develop educational materials on zoonoses for subsistence dairy farmers in Costa Rica
Socially and culturally sensitive educational materials on the transmission and prevention of zoonoses for subsistence dairy farmers in Costa Rica are being designed based on information gathered through a series of personal interviews. Women were targeted in the study since they make nutritional and health-related decisions for the family and in particular for children. The women in the study were able to actually describe the symptoms of many zoonotic diseases but were not necessarily able to identify those diseases by their medical name or knew of a vernacular name. All women preferred alternative medicine including herbal treatments and homoeopathy for any disease or ailment over western medicine. The radio was identified as the preferred source for health education dissemination for adults while it was story or colouring books for children.

Agricultural chemical safety training materials for farm workers: Review and annotated bibliography
Preventing or reducing exposure to agricultural chemicals is an important focus for health educators serving migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families. The development of the US Environmental Protection Agency Worker Protection Standard requiring that farmworkers receive pesticide-related training created a demand for culturally appropriate and effective training materials, yet no compendium of such materials exists. This paper reports the results of a search for and evaluation of training materials designed for use with farmworkers. There is considerable redundancy in the training materials currently available to health educators. Few items address the health issue of chemical residues in the fields, an important source of low-level chronic chemical exposure for farmworkers. There are no published evaluations of the effectiveness of any of the materials. This review suggests the need for further development and testing of appropriate training materials to reduce the exposure of farmworkers to agricultural chemicals.

The effect of a work-conditioning programme on manual labourers in South African industry
The Ergonomic Stress Index (ESI) is the ratio of job requirements to employee capabilities. By improving the physical work capacity of workers, while at the same time educating and training them how best to execute the task, one may be able to reduce the ESI and thus lessen the incidence of musculoskeletal disorders. The objective of the project was to investigate the effect of a "Work Conditioning" programme to proactively assist in the reduction of occupational disabilities. Twenty-four male labourers engaged in physically demanding tasks in local industries participated in the study. The programme, conducted on work premises, included general physical conditioning and specific job simulations. The results revealed an outstanding overall amelioration within the various situations with statistically significant improvement in most parameters. These data indicate that in developing countries, where there remains a substantial amount of physically demanding manual materials handling, there is an urgent need to educate and train the workers how best to cope with the demands of the task.

Evaluation of the clinical utility of mobility charts
This article reports the findings of a project that evaluated the utility of pre-designed mobility charts and stickers used to communicate a patient's mobility status and provide instructions on patient transferring techniques. A six-month trial of the mobility charts and stickers was undertaken on a combined orthopedic-rheumatology ward at a major hospital in Western Australia. A second ward with a comparable patient population (orthopedics) served as a comparison ward. The extent to which the stickers communicated clear, unambiguous instructions was also investigated. The trial revealed strong hospital staff support for the use of mobility charts. Nurses appraised the chart as being a useful, user-friendly communication tool that provided patient-specific information on transferring techniques. The findings also revealed that some stickers needed modification to enhance clarity of the instructions.

The efficacy of material safety data sheets and worker acceptability
This study quantified how well the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) diffused information to workers, compared the efficacy of an OSHA (US Occupational Safety and Health Administration) type form with the Chemical Manufacturer's Association/American National Standards Institute (CMA/ANSI Z400.1) structure and the International Chemical Safety Card (ICSC), and determined worker acceptability and understanding of MSDSs. An inventory questionnaire and quantitative testing were used to gather data from 160 union workers employed at a large national laboratory. Most of the workers in the sample population reported favourably on MSDS acceptability, accessibility, and understanding. All three formats significantly diffused information to workers, although approximately one third of the information was not absorbed. The rank order of finish between the three different formats was ICSC, OSHA-type format, and CMA/ANSI Z400.1 respectively, albeit with no significant differences in scores. There were significant differences in how well each format answered specific test questions. Topics: chemical products; data sheet; harmful substances; information of personnel; questionnaire survey; supply of information; workers participation.
