About us

Mission and vision

The Branch’s vision is for its work to focus on and be directly tied to achieving impact in the areas of labour administration, labour inspection and occupational safety and health in countries where governments, employers, and workers seek ILO assistance. The Branch will work to develop comprehensive strategies that deliver services and products that are solutions to governments, employers, and workers priority problems. To achieve this vision, the Branch will foster and engage with existing and new collaborators, including ILO headquarters and field staff, partner agencies, organizations and networks, employer and worker organizations, governments, and experts, consultants and knowledge centres around the globe.

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.
