International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health

"The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, known more commonly as ICF, is a classification of health and health-related domains. These domains are classified from body, individual and societal perspectives by means of two lists: a list of body functions and structure, and a list of domains of activity and participation. Since an individual's functioning and disability occurs in a context, the ICF also includes a list of environmental factors.

Australian Occupational Health and Safety Thesaurus

"The scope of AOHST is to cover concepts relevant to OHS in Australia at national, State and local level. Some concepts are international, but the emphasis is given to the Australian context wherever necessary. The aim is to limit the size of the thesaurus to no more than 3,000 terms. This is to ensure that it is relatively easy to review and keep up-to-date. The terminology currently included in AOHST is OHS specific. This means that certain areas which are peripheral to the NOHSC’s priorities, such as compensation and insurance, are less developed at this stage.

Public Health Language

"The Health Development Agency and England's Public Health Observatories (PHO's) have developed a unified Public Health Language (PHL) [formally known as the National Public Health Language] to facilitate interoperability. The first version of this language was officially launched at a conference on the 20th December 2004. The PHL is the result of integrating the former HDA's 'Public Health Information Thesaurus' with the PHOs 'Public Health Information Tagging System' (PHITS), which are no longer active as they have been superseded by the PHL.
