In 1985, the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) established a Scientific Committee on Education and Training in Occupational Health. This Scientific committee has been established to improve education and training in the field of health and safety at work. This includes the education of medical students and students of other relevant disciplines, and the education of occupational health nurses, occupational physicians, occupational hygienists, safety experts, psychologists, and other professionals in occupational safety and health (OSH). In addition, the education of non-OSH professionals is crucial such as family physicians in primary health care, human resource managers and engineers. Finally, most effective might be the education and training of workers and managers and their representatives, and of volunteers active for workers’ health.
