About the E-Library

The GeoLibrary is a project of the Network of Collaborating Centres Work Plan in support of the WHO strategy of “Occupational Health for All.” The responsibility for constructing the library was undertaken by the Great Lakes Centers for Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health. Additionally, the Great Lakes Centers added the, “environmental health,” branch to the library to address the training needs of environmental health users, and the Specialty: Road Safety at Work branch was added in collaboration with NIOSH in order to provide materials related to the prevention of road traffic injuries and deaths while at work.

Geolibrary.org is an electronic library of occupational and environmental health training materials with a specialty branch, Road Safety at Work. The library user information is available in six languages, and contains training materials and practice tools located in the public domain and are available to the user free of charge. These resources are available in many forms some of which include: complete courses, webcasts, tutorials/modules, factsheets, databases, and sample/ model programs and guidelines. The materials contained in this library come from a wide variety of sources, including international organizations, governmental institutes and agencies, academic institutions, corporations, unions, and non-governmental organizations.

The Specialty: Road Safety at Work online library houses global resources related to the prevention of road traffic injuries and deaths while at work. The resources include employer policies and guidance documents on road safety at work, research reports on risk factors for work-related crashes, as well as statistics about worker injuries and fatalities on roads. We hope that you find this library helpful and invite you to use these practice tools and training materials.
