The ILO has developed and tested various tools for promoting occupational safety and health (OSH) in the workplace. Participatory Action-Oriented Training (PAOT) is a training methodology specifically designed to improve working conditions and productivity in Small and Micro Enterprises (SMEs) and the informal economy in developing countries. To promote sustainable delivery mechanisms for improving OSH in SMEs, this course, which includes both a distance-learning and a residential phase, aims to instruct trainers from developing countries in the delivery of OSH courses based on the PAOT programmes, and at the same time offer them an online knowledge platform and a virtual professional community for networking purposes.
