This training manual was produced by China Labor Support Network (CLSN) for their training workshop on the Reproductive Health of Women workers in the garments and electronics manufacturing industries, mainly because of the higher concentration of women employees in these industries.
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.
