Prevention of Occupational Risks - B.2. Information and Communication
Information and communication constitutes an inherent part of all prevention services. Information is the basic element which underpins all prevention services. It involves the systematic collection, processing, description, presentation and transfer of knowledge (e.g. through the education and training of staff dealing with prevention) and making effective use of all available communication channels. The dissemination of information to target groups as well as the general public is vital. In this process, knowledge in prevention is the key.
