Development of an Online Repository of OH&S Education and Training Resources for Health Care: Phase 1

The purpose of this project was to develop an online repository for occupational health and safety (OHS) training and education. The goal of the portal is to reduce the duplication of education and training effort across B.C. by promoting the re-use, re-development, and re-purposing of existing education and training resources and by increasing the collaborative development of new resources

This project developed an online tool for sharing OHS education and training resources for the health care sector. The site, OHS Connect, was designed with input from prospective users obtained through a survey, focus groups and usability testing

Future projects that involve designing or testing OHS programs in B.C. health care can now make use of the repository to review what has already been done, and to get in contact with other professionals developing similar programs
