OIC-OSHNET was established in 2011 and has 56 member countries. DGOSH Türkiye is the permanent secretariat of the Network. DGOSH and the technical coordinator of the Network-SESRIC have organized trainings on a wide range of subjects, expert exchange programs, and capacity-building activities within the framework of OIC-OSHNET for nearly 10 years.

The two-day training aimed to exchange information and share best practices among OIC member countries to raise safety awareness and promote a safety culture by integrating OSH into education.
