Subject: Free online course in occupational health
Hello, I approach you, as you are all members of the ICOH Board, I hope you do not mind and I hope you can help.
Together with colleagues here in Bergen, Norway and in Tanzania/Ethiopia, we have made a MOOC - massive open online course in Occupational Health in Developing Countries. This is free for everyone to attend. The course begins 7 March 2016, and it is possible to sign up now. The course is at Master level but can be attended by anyone interested in work and health. We need students to sign in for the course! Can you please help me to inform about it?
You can see the advertising trailer (I hope you do, it is just 1-2 minutes) of the course and it is possible to sign up for it here:
This free online course is teaching basic knowledge on work and health and how to prevent the development of diseases and injuries, caused by working conditions. As you may know, the industrial activity in the developing countries is increasing, but focus on the working conditions is not following. Both the industry and the health services worldwide lack knowledge about the high risk of injuries and death in the work place. As a result, millions of people are getting hurt. The course is our contribution to reduce the problem.
We need students to sign up and follow the course. Do you think you can help me to spread this information? I enclose a poster about it, it can be sent anywhere. I will be very, very grateful for any help on this.
