CIS Centres Network



This Network is the product of the ongoing co-operation of the International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre (CIS) and its National and Collaborating Centres all over the world. The goal of this Network is to help its members and the rest of the world to find meaningful, comprehensive, structured and up-to-date information from the participating countries on subjects related to occupational safety and health (OSH).

Providers of the information are the National and Collaborating Centres and CIS itself. The organizational work stays with CIS. The operation of the Network is generously offered by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).
