New Resource

A new resource, brought to my attention by our invaluable English resource, Rory O'Neil: The International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health (IJOEH) website.
Rory calls IJOEH "the most impressive and useful academic journal on occupational and environmental health issues. Highly recommended. "

IJOEH is an excellent resource for international OHSE work, is authoritative and includes papers on working conditions across the world, and is now providing many of its articles online. Recent themes covered in the journal have included:

* Industry-efforts to influence (or direct involvement with) organisations including the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH)

* Pesticides and human rights

* International asbestos industry and government lobbying against asbestos bans

* Hazards in the microelectronics industry

The website also includes a useful "world news" page.
