Occupational Safety and Health in the Construction Sector in Serbia

Construction is one of the largest and most hazardous industrial sectors globally. Construction workers suffer a high number of work accidents, especially severe and fatal ones, which raise a serious concern of the ILO’s tripartite constituents.

The purpose of this publication is to provide a comprehensive review of the current occupational safety and health (OSH) situation in the construction industry in Serbia by assessing gaps in the national OSH system and identifying priority areas for national OSH policies and programmes.

The target audience of this publication is national authorities, OSH experts and social partners who are working to improve safety conditions in the construction industry in Serbia.
