The LDOH (Learning and Development of Occupational Health) is an international foundation, not-for-profit, founded in July 2014. The international experts connected with LDOH have a long tradition of national and international activities in the OH field, working in a wide variety of academic, professional and educational functions. They showed leadership nationally and internationally in research, development, education and information in occupational health. Programs and projects were completed in many countries, mostly working in international teams and often in connection with international organizations such as WHO, ICOH, IOHA, WONCA and EASOM.
The foundation LDOH has the mission to support professionals through developing and promoting good quality education and information on Occupational Safety and Health.
