Beyond death and injuries: The ILO's role in promoting safe and healthy jobs

The ILO report provides the most recently revised estimates of the global impact of occupational accidents and diseases, as well as an examination of what can and is already done to improve safety at work.

The report provides an overview of the most recent ILO estimates of work-related accidents and diseases, and also summarizes the provisions of the new instruments, as they relate to the building of preventative safety and health cultures, OSH management systems, national OSH systems, programmes and profiles. The report also covers recent ILO technical and international cooperation activities in these and other topic areas. Finally, several emerging OSH strategies are discussed, including the forecasting of hazards and risks, and their potential impact on the future of OSH.

The report was launched at the XVIII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
