Abstract
In 2000, the CDC/NIOSH consultant at the Pan American Health Organization office in Mexico presented a course on the conduct of workplace evaluations to two different audiences: physicians in their second year of an occupational medicine residency program and newly hired workplace inspectors with varying years of experience in diverse specialties (e.g., chemical engineering, medicine, nursing, social work, economics, and law). The requesters of both courses specifically asked that the course cover the methods of NIOSH health hazard evaluations. The objective - to put theoretical knowledge into practice for the evaluation and solution of workers' health problems. To meet Mexican collaborators' priorities, the course focused on high-risk industries and emphasized interventions as well as evaluations. This presentation describes the course design and content. A separate presentation describes the approaches and solutions developed to overcome learning obstacles encountered during the presentation of the course.
