Mission and vision
The LABADMIN/OSH Branch aims to create worldwide awareness of the human and economic costs of work-related fatalities, injuries and diseases and to place the health and safety of all workers high on the international agenda.
In the areas of labour administration and labour inspection, the LABADMIN/OSH Branch is working to support the ILO constituents, in particular Ministries of Labour and their labour inspection systems, in fulfilling their roles to improve working conditions for all workers, to achieve compliance with labour laws and regulations, to prevent and settle labour disputes, and to promote good governance and tripartism.
