New resource: OSH-UPDATE

Access to the OSH-UPDATE service has been set-up in eSearch. Access is direct on-campus, and by university username and password from off-campus (using the Shibbolized eZproxy service). The resource is described as follows:

OSH-UPDATE offers more than 500,000 records in the fields of occupational health, safety, hygiene, road safety, water safety and environment trends, drawn from a range of authoritative database sources including the UK legislation database; the UK Health and Safety Executive HSELINE; and the UK Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), and a number of other European and worldwide sources.

OSH-UPDATE provides full bibliographic citation and abstracts for all journal articles, conference reports and other materials in its index; and offers links to selected full-text services where these are available.

As only a single simultaneous user is permitted under the terms of LLR’s licence, the following note has also been added:

Please note: under the terms of LLR’s subscription to OSH-UPDATE only one person may access the resource at a time. To free up the service for the next visitor, always remember to Logoff at the end of your session. If you see the following error message, “You have reached your licences limit on the number of concurrent sessions”, please try again later.

For LLR, OSH-UPDATE serves as a replacement for the OSH-ROM service which will shortly cease to be available from Silverplatter-OVID. A further update will confirm when OSH-ROM has been withdrawn from eSearch.
