The world’s only NGO promoting OSH literacy® awareness .

What is OSH literacy®?

OSH literacy ® can be described as: The degree to which individuals have the capacity to access, process and utilize Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) information and services needed to eliminate or reduce risk.

OSH literacy.org is a non-profit NGO which advocates for the recognition and teaching of OSH literacy as an essential, functional life-skill.

OSH literacy.org is the world’s first and only dedicated organisation specifically raising awareness and best practice with regards to  Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) communications, especially for persons with low levels of language, literacy and learning ability . We are a collective of teachers, health-care workers and OSH professionals committed to making a tangible reduction in the unacceptably high numbers of deaths, disease, injuries and losses which occur in the global-workplace due to poor OSH communications. It is our aim to have OSH literacy recognised as an important and specialised work and life-skill literacy, for it to be taught in schools and colleges and to make  OSH communications  ‘Accessible to All’.
