Abstract: This study aimed to demonstrate participatory capacity building regarding occupational disease surveillance (ODS) could enable the Primary Care Unit (PCU) health personnel provide satisfactory occupational health services for workers in the community. A needs assessment was carried out to identify gaps in PCU health personnel skills and knowledge so these areas could be strengthened. An ODS training program was developed. Fifty-nine health personnel participated in a 5 day workshop and received instructions regarding a wide range of occupational diseases, surveillance methods, prevention measures, and Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) surveillance systems. Participants self reported positive changes in knowledge and skills, as well as a high level of satisfaction with the workshop. However, many participants noted barriers to consistently implementing reporting procedures.
