Training workshop for labour inspectors on prevention approach in the framework of the Labour Inspection Campaign 2016 in the construction sector

The trainings provide labour inspectors with knowledge and understanding about labour inspection campaign 2016 and necessary skills to implement the campaign's activities with preventive approach.

The Labour Inspection campaign 2016 focuses on the construction sector, which involves the highest rate of accidents in terms of the total number of accidents and fatalities. Besides the occupational safety and health (OSH) risks, in the recent cases, it is revealed that the workers of this sector may face inappropriate working conditions such as excessive overtime, working without employment contract or the payment of social security contributions. In the framework of 2016 campaign, the construction workers and employers are informed and encouraged to comply with domestic laws and international labour standards, especially with OSH requirements. To build capacity for the labour inspectors, the ILO in collaboration with Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs will conduct a series of training for labour inspectors so that they could better perform the role of providing advisory service to construction enterprises based on preventive approach.
