Ensuring a Positive Practice Environment: Occupational Safety and Health for Health Worker Productivity.
This joint ICN/CapacityPlus technical brief outlines ways to make health workers' safety a higher-level policy issue and shows how to create working environments that prioritize occupational health.

Health workers are adversely affected by numerous occupational safety and health (OSH) hazards they face on the job. Effective OSH measures contribute to national workforce health and productivity, but only 5%-10% of workers in developing countries have adequate OSH services.

The technical brief is available as an interactive online version on www.capacityplus.org/technical-brief-4/ and as a PDF: www.capacityplus.org/files/resources/ensuring-positive-practice-environment-occupational-safety-health-worker-productivity.pdf
