The working group Core Values at Work of the ICOH Scientific Committee on Education and Training issued a first Newsletter.
“We are not replaceable. Our safety is the number-one priority.
We do not have a problem working. That is a big misconception
people have. We have a problem with the way we are treated.
We just want to be treated with respect.”
— Warehouse worker
“The most beautiful thing is knowing all of the other workers,
chatting with them, learning about their lives and their
experiences. I would try to encourage them and say,
‘Do not worry, paisano.’”
— Farm worker
More attention is needed for the core values at work for all involved: workers, managers and experts in OSH. A greater awareness of these dimensions may give the experts a better understanding about what precisely we are doing, personally and as a movement to foster health, safety, well-being and meaningfulness at work.
The working group is searching for new members. If you feel attracted, please contact the members of the working group (see the Newsletter).
