Since the issues covered in these Modules are sources of concern in many workplaces, the topics in this collection were selected in consultation with trade unions from a number of different countries. These Modules have been designed to provide training for health and safety representatives; members of health and safety committees, line supervisors; foremen; or rank and file workers. They are also intended for the use of instructors such as general worker educators; health and safety representatives; shop stewards; and all workers who are willing to learn about health and safety and want to share such information with others.

Courses could be organized using either a single module, several, or all: the pedagogical approach is based on the basic principle of modular teaching which makes it possible to adapt the materials to the time available and the circumstances.

The collection: 50 Swiss francs
