Welcome to the Global Worker Health Wiki, your go-to resource for information on worker health policies and practices around the world. This wiki aims to develop a comprehensive collection of information on worker health issues, such as occupational health and safety, worker wellness, workplace injury prevention, and others. Please join us and contribute!

Our aim is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and best practices, connecting the civil societies and policy advocates from different parts of the world, and promoting collaboration and innovation in the field of worker health. Whether you're a researcher, practitioner, worker, or simply interested in learning more about worker health, this wiki has something for you.

We invite you to explore our wide range of Publications, Tools, and Resources, and to contribute your own knowledge and expertise to the community. Browse the lists of all people, organizations, projects, and resources by country, by sector, or by theme.

Together, we can work towards healthier, safer, happier, and more productive lives for all.


*** Intro/Overview text on Corporate Commitments needed, in context ***

*** Toolkits are included under Tools... should they also be listed in the Publications page? ***

*** Meridian Group's Project and Activity Briefs are listed under Publications... should they be also listed under Projects, Tools, Resources? ***

*** MISTAKE: Evidence Project's Publications, Tools, and Resources are listed as "by Meridian Group" - needs fixing ***

*** Should the authoring organization be always a link? I suggest no... but we should have a list of contributing organizations (partners on this wiki) where a link (and perhaps the org's and wiki editor's contact info) can be easily looked up ***

*** Should Frameworks be listed under Tools (currently are)? ***

*** Should Calls to Action (currently under Activity Briefs) be in a separate section? Under Initiatives? Should ALL Activity Briefs (under Publications) be also under Initiatives? ***

*** Resources page includes so far: Presentations ***

*** Is this brief better be classified as Case Study, Project Brief, or Activity Brief? Typically lessons learned go under case studies... ***

*** Should only Articles list individual authors and organizations, or all contributing authors from all organizations? The main purpose of the wiki is to be an index of information that is easy to navigate... extended credits information will make navigation somewhat more cumbersome... ***

*** In the Organizations section, should we include the larger scope organizations such as UN Global Compact, UN Foundation, etc... these are likely to be the partners/contributors to this wiki... ***

*** Should Research be listed or cross-referenced under Publications, for completeness? Or should we at some point break the Publications page into multiple pages ? ***

*** In general, how do we organize the Research page? ***

*** Is Principles and Guidelines a necessary page? Is Strategies? ***
