Occupational Health

Global Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) is highly related to the drive of economic globalization. The gap between developed and underdeveloped countries increases as the global market grows, which generates many issues related to OH&S services in developing countries, such as occupational diseases, poor working conditions, and injuries. Although the economic gap and lack of resources are the main reasons for such problems, other issues in developing counties had contributed to the low status of OH&S services, including untrained workers, informal and illegal labor, lack of law enforcements, and the poor conditions of construction, and agricultural sectors.    

Public health including workers’ health is affected by the current situation. Inadequate training and education and lack of resources have influenced the OH&S services in many countries in the region. Additionally, the fragile infrastructure and weak awareness regarding the importance of OH&S services increase the necessity for a high-quality training programs in the field. Thereby, developing a tailored training program is a guaranteed way to enhance the infrastructure, increases the level of awareness, and improve the working conditions of many workers.

Each training course is delivered in (30) Learning Hours. These courses can be taken as part of the three-month programs (Post Graduate Diploma Certificate), or as stand-alone courses. The participant will be awarded a Certificate of Successful Completion upon meeting the course requirements by the International Academy of Public Health (IAPH) and accredited by the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA).
