Description

Available through the OSH References combined search, CISILO is a bilingual, bibliographic database which provides references to international occupational health and safety literature. The database is created by the International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre/Centre international d’informations de sécurité et d’hygiène du travail (CIS) in Geneva.

CIS scans more than 400 journals annually on basic safety and health topics. More than 80 CIS National Centres collect and send material to Geneva to be included in the database.
Some 50% of the abstracts cover topics specific to occupational hygiene;another 30% cover occupational medicine; and about 20% cover industrial safety.
