Announcing Three Summer Courses in Occupational and Environmental Health: Brescia, Bangkok and Munich

28 Apr 2017

Three international Courses on Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental Health are planned for summer 2017:

  1. Global Occupational and Environmental Determinants of Diseases: a multidisciplinary approach for prevention, July 10-14, at the University of Brescia, Italy;
  2. Advanced International Training Course in Occupational and Environmental Health, July 17-21, at the Chulabhorn Research Institute in Bangkok, Thailand;
  3. Teaching interventions crossing borders, August 21-September 1, at the Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich, Germany.

In addition to high-quality, hands-on training in occupational health and safety, these courses provide unique opportunities for networking among OEH professionals from both high-income countries and low- and middle-income countries and for developing multi-national approaches to continuing education that extend beyond the courses. Students and faculty attending the three courses are encouraged to provide information about occupational and environmental health in their countries including such aspects as OHS services coverage and organization; workers’ benefits and compensation; ratification and implementation of ILO and WHO policies; preventive interventions in environmental health; and remediation of hazardous waste sites.

To provide an opportunity for young OEH professionals to publish their work in a peer-reviewed journal, students and faculty participating in the courses are invited to submit publications in a special issue of the Annals of Global Health that will be specifically dedicated to Occupational and Environmental Global Health and guest edited by the Directors of the three courses.

Professionals in Occupational Environmental Health in countries around the world are invited to apply for one of more of these courses.
