This training manual has been produced by the Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development (IOHSAD) one of AMRC's partners in its long standing training of trainers (ToT) program in the region. IOHSAD is based in Manila and has been working on OSH issues since the 1980's. This manual has been produced by them for their training activities based on material from AMRC and members of the ANROEV network like LOHP and localised based on their experiences in working with workers and victims on OSH.
AMRC in partnership with Homenet South East Asia carried out a training of trainers for informal workers in Manila early 2010. This was the first collaboration AMRC had with Homenet South East Asia and along with Occupational Safety and Health Center (OHSC . The participants were informal workers and a lot of them were home based workers who were from a very diverse background.

This report on the OSH and reproductive health issues of garment workers was carried out by the Local Initiative for OSH Network (LION) in partnership with AMRC. OSH as right of the worker mostly fulfilled by employers only to “outwit” the buyer and to keep the orders coming in. This situation has been understood by all parties involved in, the big companies in Indonesia“survive” by any order and so the worker is never the priority. The situation gets even worse when there is no union in the company.
