International Occupational Health and Safety Information Centre (CIS)

The abbreviation used for the International Occupational Health and Safety Information Centre is CIS. They collect and disseminate world literature that can contribute to the prevention of occupational hazards. Assisted by over 100 National and Collaborating Centres, it provides users with the most comprehensive computerised abstracting and indexing service in the field of occupational safety and health (OSH).

CIS Collaborating Centres have been established to respond to cases in countries where, for geographic, demographic, or linguistic reasons, a National Centre does not have all the resources necessary to satisfy the information needs of the whole population.
