The broader objective of the Participation Oriented Safety Training (POST) manual is to support emptiers and employers involved in this field to improve their knowledge of occupational health and safety in both manual and mechanical operations. The present training manual aims to address the risks involved in faecal sludge handing and emptying operations through the implementation of participation based model. And to provide the skills required to fulfil the role of a field level occupational health and safety (OHS) educator / trainer and increase collective participation between employers and workers in this regard. This POST training manual is a result of joint efforts of the SNV Netherlands Development Organization, Bangladesh and OSHE Foundation with a hope that it will serve as an effective instrument on improving working condition and protection of the faecal sludge emptiers in the country. It is also expected that this training manual contributes towards minimizing work-related risks and health exposures, promotion of good health and safety practices, and development of safe and environment-friendly faecal sludge emptying activity through the collective efforts of relevant authorities, employers and emptiers.
