The WHO Modules in occupational health, hygiene and safety are designed to provide education for professionals who are charged with the responsibility of protecting the health of workers: public health officers, physicians, nurses, policy makers, labor inspectors, and worker health and safety advocates. These materials were developed to implement the Forty-ninth World Health Assembly global strategy for occupational health (WHA49.12). Where relevant, the materials complement the effort of the International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS) Global Implementation Strategy on occupational risk management.
