Abstract:
This systematic review was conducted to determine whether OHS training and education programs have a beneficial effect on workers and firms. it showed that:

  • Workplace education and training programs have a positive impact on OHS practices of workers. However, there is not enough high quality evidence to show whether OHS training on its own has an impact on health (for example, by reducing injuries or symptoms).
  • There is currently insufficient evidence to determine whether a single session of high engagement training has a greater impact compared to a single session of low/medium engagement training.
