International Occupational Safety and Health

According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), more than 2 million people around the world die every year due to accidents at work or from occupational diseases. The discrepancy between occupational safety and health conditions varies significantly between countries, economic sectors and social groups. Developing countries, the informal sector and small and medium-sized enterprises are the most affected.

With the aim to improve working conditions in Latin America, the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology & Net Teaching Unit of the Institute and Clinic for Occupational, Social and Environmental Medicine of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität offers a variety of curriculum options in the area of occupational safety and health. This Institute is one of the three German WHO Collaborating Centers for Occupational Health and offers a wide variety of international contacts, especially in Latin America.
