Occupational Health in Developing Countries - this course is currently under revision, and unavailable

Every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease. Two thirds of these deaths happen in developing countries. Many countries have no focus on the health and safety of their workers. Better knowledge and education can prevent many of these tragic events.

This FREE online course provides an introduction to occupational health – a part of public health that is neglected in many developing countries, where industrial activity is increasing, but the health and safety of workers is hardly discussed.

The course will teach you basic knowledge of occupational health and how to prevent the development of diseases and injuries, which are caused by working conditions in developing countries.

The course runs for 6 weeks (4 hours per week) and there are no course fees.


Please spread the word about our courses to anyone you think may be interested!
