Construction sector

The construction industry falls within the ILO’s sector-specific approach to decent work that translates high-level policy advice into practice where impact is needed – in the workplace. The Sectoral Activities Department (SECTOR) undertakes research on emerging labour issues in the construction industry, facilitates social dialogue among the ILO’s tripartite constituents (i.e., workers, employers, and governments), provides technical advice, and develops practical tools, policy recommendations, and training modules used by the headquarters and field offices.
