Strengthening of occupational health in the Baltic Sea countries : report on a WHO meeting, Riga, Latvia 17-18 October 1996
AbstractInformation systems for occupational health and safety should serve several levels and groups, such as decision-makers, government authorities, employers and employees, educational and research institutions, and the general public. The WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, Bilthoven Division, in collaboration with the Latvian Institute of Environmental and Occupational Health and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, invited experts and managers from the countries around the Baltic Sea to review the indicators and procedures used in different countries, and to assess the situation in occupational health and progress in building up an information network. The participants recommended that country profiles be compiled and published, covering legislation, responsible government authorities , government and nongovernmental infrastructures, human and financial resources, and other information needed to assess occupational health and safety practice. The arrangements for establishing the telematic information network on occupational health and safety among the countries around the Baltic Sea were deemed to be well underway
