“World Day for Safety and Health at Work”?
Health and safety of staff is a top priority of most employers, including the 75+ member organizations of LINGOs, many of whose staff members work in difficult and often dangerous conditions. However, many more work in offices, at desks and at computers, where work-place injury and ill-health (carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, shoulder and eye-strain) can often begin.
Where knowledge of how to promote health and prevent accidents, injuries and ill health will make a difference, LINGOs member agencies have some helpful capacity building resources available to them in their learning portals.
|LINGOs member agency IUCN (the International Union for the Conservation of Nature) used a LINGOs-supplied Articulate license to create a nifty little eLearning resource in three languages on office ergonomics.|
|Founding member CARE shared its Personal Safety and Security Awareness Course (separate editions in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Arabic) with the LINGOs community.|
There are many lists of international observance days, or examples of international days of action – why not use your organizational learning resources be part of your organization’s observance, celebration or action?
Tips to leverage international observance days to promote engagement with your learning resources:
- Encourage or enroll staff in courses related to the action topic
- Create a short quiz, poll, or competition that provides learning related to the topic
- Send out an electronic (or hard copy) post-card or poster with information about learning resources and actions your colleagues can take
- Tell a story (on-line or in person) about a colleague who used the learning resource to take action on the topic
