The ILO Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety is a comprehensive tool for academia, journalists and the general public – anyone interested in obtaining data and other information about safety and health at work.
The latest edition of the Encyclopaedia, taking advantage of the information technology revolution, has evolved into an online knowledge-sharing resource, with a user-friendly interface in English, French and Spanish.
The transformation of the Encyclopaedia from a printed issue to an electronic and online platform enables quick and easy access to the most up-to-date information in the occupational safety and health (OSH) field.
The Encyclopaedia website will serve as a cutting-edge global tool for OSH information and especially good practices. The Encyclopaedia is written and compiled by world class researchers and industry experts, and will be updated regularly by different contributors around the world. The online platform is also connected to a wide variety of ILO health and safety resources and third party information sources (such as online databases and websites).
