The (International Labour Organization) offers the ILO Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety (Ed. Stellman, J. M.) online. The Encyclopaedia is one manifestation of the long-term commitment of ILO for an improvement of working conditions and "the protection of the worker from sickness, disease and injury arising out of … employment". The current edition is the fourth since 1930.
 For creating this fourth edition, the ILO has relied on experts from around the world to write and review articles for the Encyclopaedia. Mirroring the unique tripartite structure of the ILO, the authorship of the Encyclopaedia includes representatives from government, employers’ organizations and labour unions. Experts from over 50 countries contributed to the fourth edition, and practically every major professional organization and academic institution involved in occupational health and safety has assisted in its creation.
Also made available is a multilingual database (CISILO) thatprovides references to all aspects of health and safety with an emphasis on training and policy documents from various countries.

The ERGONOMIC Institute has contributed to the ILO Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety 4th Edition with a chapter on work with computer systems (design and organization of the workplace, image quality of the monitor, radiation hazards etc.)
