Workplace Health Without Borders (WHWB) is an international organisation of occupational hygienists and other occupational health professionals dedicated to providing technical assistance, training and skills development to workers in developing economies to help them to develop the capacity and local infrastructure to manage and improve health conditions in their workplaces. I’ve been involved with the organisation for a couple of years and last year helped to set up a branch in the UK.
Last week, I gave a presentation on the work WHWB is doing on LEV to a joint conference organised by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) and the Occupational Hygiene Society of Ireland (OHSI) in Liverpool on Exposure Control and Containment. The presentation was based on my own experience helping a company in Tanzania (a consultancy project) and some advice I provided to a project in Uganda on behalf of WHWB, but mainly focused on the LEV aspects of the Agate worker project using some excellent material provided by Paul Bozek of Toronto University.
