Profile of women coffee producers in Mexico. Case study of their occupational health and safety conditions

The International Labour Organization (ILO), in the framework of the Vision Zero Fund and in collaboration with IWCA, conducted this study to generate a profile of women coffee workers and producers in Mexico in relation to their socio-demographic and labour situation, as well as their situation in terms of OSH.

This is a qualitative study in the states of Veracruz, Puebla and Hidalgo. Three data-collection tools were used: (a) a survey on the socio-demographic and labour profile of women coffee workers and producers, with an OSH emphasis, (b) in-depth interviews on the participation of women in coffee organizations in Mexico, and (c) a questionnaire on OSH perceptions (knowledge, attitudes and behaviours) for trainers from coffee-producer organizations.
