Through this collaboration, the institutes will cooperate to develop trainer capabilities for occupational health and safety in the workplace; establish integrated workplace safety and health management, also known as Total Workplace Safety and Health (Total WSH); and build holistic leadership, management and specialist capabilities in programme planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of public healthcare programmes.

The programme comprises several capacity building courses in occupational health, Total WSH in Healthcare and Public Health Leadership.
