Workers’ Health Education works not-for-profit. Besides, it strives to provide access to the educational materials free of charge to the users. We are considering the inclusion of low-priced learning materials offered by non-profit organizations such as universities that need modest financial contributions to develop and update the learning materials and to offer service to the users. In the latter case, it will be indicated on this website that the material will be charged for by the owner(s). For the sake of clarity: the website Workers’ Health Education does not make money out of these paid services, nor gets any commission on this material. The charging, if any, will not be done via the website of Workers’ Health Education.
Sponsoring & sponsors
The activities to be performed for this website, such as the maintenance of the present data and Forums, the search for, selection and qualification of new learning materials, costs of IT and for some public relations, are highly dependent of sponsors and their donations. We encourage organizations that subscribe the principles of the Workers’ Health Education initiative to provide financial support. In turn, these organizations are acknowledged and their logo (including link) is displayed on the sponsor part of the homepage. Sponsors may also think of alternative ways of support, e.g. by providing learning materials for free that otherwise would have been charged for.
The funding and support by the WHO and Coronel Institute of the University of Amsterdam for the initial development of this Workers’ Health Education website are gratefully acknowledged. We will ask the support of the WHO Collaborating Centers and of those international organizations that have the aim to encourage the development of basic services in occupational health and safety.
Since Workers’ Health Education does not make money out of the activities presented on this website, we need sponsoring in order to be able to continue the website facilities after the initial period. In the future we will develop a clear sponsoring policy including criteria for the acceptance of sponsors and the conditions involved. We will develop this policy in the Steering Group (see: About us), in good collaboration with the WHO and the Network of WHO Collaborating Centers in Occupational Health.
