OSH training

There is strong evidence that occupational safety and health training can improve worker behaviour, but there is insufficient data on its impact on health and injuries, according to a systematic review of 22 papers (six involving healthcare workers). There is insufficient evidence that higher-engagement training (behavioural modelling, hands-on training, simulation) is any more effective than passive, information-based training (lectures, videos). There is a lack of high-quality randomised controlled trials.
