The main aim of the OSH Evidence working group was to promote the use of evidence through high quality systematic reviews. So the aim was to collect systematic reviews on occupational health topics and to exchange experiences on any aspect of systematic reviews.
Further objectives were:
- To facilitate knowledge transfer from scientific research into policy making by making systematic reviews available from many different sources and presenting them in a systematic way.
- To coordinate the conducting of systematic reviews in the field of occupational health and safety to prevent duplication of work.
- To bring together expertise in this area to improve the quality and the usability of systematic reviews.
The working group developed a methodology, built up a database on systematic reviews on OSH topics, made workshops and gave presentations on international conferences.
After the Perosh project OSH Evidence ended in 2015, the following outputs were summarized in order to make the work of the OSH Evidence group available for everybody. We hope that these outputs are helpful for OSH professionals for the future. The output of the OSH Evidence project can be found HERE.
Any supplements are welcome.
The project members presented their work on several conferences
