CIS Centres Preparing for 50th Anniversary

The network started 50 years ago by the International Labour Organization's International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre has grown to 136 programs, with additional organizations cooperating. The original center was created in 1959 to facilitate the exchange of information about safety and health around the world, and that has been accomplished. A June 2009 special issue will mark the network's first 50 years and show how it is positioned for the future.

CIS is responsible for producing the ILO Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety, which is now available free online. It also provides online databases of exposure limits and material safety data sheets with the overall goal of helping workers and employers prevent occupational diseases and injuries.

The CIS newsletter is not an official ILO publication, but it contains information from CIS Centre members. It is produced by Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd (85 The Meadows, Todwick, Sheffield S26 1JG, UK, phone +44 (0) 1909 771024, fax +44 (0) 1909 772829, e-mail [email protected]). Its March 2009 issue invites members to participate in the 50th Anniversary issue and develop a broad communications strategy "as the first major step to Rebranding, Relaunching and Revitalising your CIS Centre."
