Workers' Health Education - A database with learning materials for workers' health

Worker's Health Education is an initiative aiming to stimulate and support education and training in basic occupational safety and health knowledge and skills all over the world. It is funded by the Coronel Institute of Occupational Health, a department of the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands), and supported by the WHO. The initiative supports education and training efforts through improvement of access to good learning materials that are available, and through encouragement of communication and collaboration of all those involved.

The good quality learning materials in the database are easily accessible, in general free-of-charge  and the website provides thorough descriptions of the different materials. The Workers' Health Education website also has a Forum, via which users from all over the world can exchange questions and all kind of basic services experiences, plans, programs, curricula etc.

The website was launched officially in March 2012 during the 30th conference of the 'International Commission on Occupational Health' (ICOH) in Cancún (Mexico). To receive information on the latest additions to the site, you can subscribe to the Workers' Health Education Newsletter.

Grief at work: what do I say? how can I help? what do I do? 

Grief cannot be left at the door when an employee comes to work. Often managers and colleagues want to do the right thing, but are unsure about how to support the person. Because of this The Irish Hospice Foundation has created a series of resources and training programmes for organisations and staff to help them understand grief, the impact it has on the bereaved and their colleagues, and ways in which they can be positively supported.
