The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has translated two leading training courses into Bahasa Indonesia to help improve workplace safety standards in Indonesia.
Large numbers of workers in Indonesia are concentrated in professions such as oil and gas, mining and the petrochemical industry – industries where there is a high risk of occupational death, injury and work-related disease.
In recent years, workplace safety and health initiatives have been established in the country, such as Better Work Indonesia – a partnership between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) – to improve working conditions and productivity in targeted employment-intensive sectors by improving compliance with international core labour standards and Indonesian labour law.
IOSH’s Managing Safely and Working Safely courses have been launched in Bahasa Indonesia to provide those in working roles in Indonesia with a greater understanding of how to work safely and to better prepare them to have a greater awareness of hazards and risks in the workplace.

Emma Bellingham, Learning Design Manager at IOSH, said: “IOSH’s Managing Safely and Working Safely courses are world-renowned, providing workers and managers with vital information about risks and hazards in the workplace and the importance of good occupational safety and health.
“The courses, which we have translated into Bahasa Indonesia, retain the context and meaning from our core course materials and allow our messages to reach a wider global audience. Indonesia is a country that recognises the importance of OSH standards and sectors such as oil & gas, mining and petrochemical and seek occupationally competent employees to uphold these standards.
“IOSH has translated both Managing Safely and Working Safely to support organisations to ensure employees are trained to a globally recognised standard and are competent to keep themselves and their colleagues safe at work.”
