Essentials for a successful employment injury insurance system

A practical guide on policy, institutional governance, legislation, administration and sustainable finance.

Social protection of workers and their survivors in cases of work-related accidents and occupational diseases is essential, but is still painfully inadequate in many parts of the world (as the Rana Plaza tragedy illustrated only too clearly). As part of its mission, the International Labour Organization (ILO) promotes employment injury (EI) insurance and mobilizes resources to support governments in their efforts to improve their employment injury benefit schemes.
