OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH NETWORK (OIC-OSHNET)

What is OIC-OSHNET?

OIC Network for Occupational Safety and Health (OIC-OSHNET) is a transnational networks project under the framework of Vocational Education and Training Programme for Islamic Countries (OIC-VET). It was proposed by the Statistical Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) in order to establish closer cooperation for sharing knowledge, experience and new technologies, conduct joint research and training, exchange of good practices and to organize new initiatives, projects and programmes in the field of Occupational Safety and Health among similar local, national and regional institutions, OSH researchers and practitioners, national authorities, policy makers, social security institutions and employers' and workers' organizations active in this field in the OIC Member Countries.

The vision of the project is to establish an international network for systematic sharing of information and experience in occupational safety and health issues among professionals, to build public awareness of occupational safety and health in OIC Member Countries, as well as to improve the quality of the service in this area.

With the OIC-OSHNET, it is expected that all the stakeholders involved, including members of the civil society and of the private sector, will generate awareness on the issues of occupational safety and health, enhance their knowledge in the concerned fields and develop a better understanding of the current situation at the country and regional level, and reflect these findings into respective reports.
