  1. Decent work deficit in Asia

    15 January 2001

    Asia has been struggling to recover from a financial crisis that rocked the region 4 years ago.

  2. The Shipbreakers

    01 September 2000

    Few nations are willing to accept the dirty and dangerous work of dismantling a ship by hand. It is one of the world's most unregulated and hazardous industries, leaving a trail of debris, disability and death in its wake. At the same time, it is an industry that supplies much needed income to Bangladeshi workers who have few decent alternatives.

  3. The Face of Decent Work

    01 December 1999

    Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases - more than 2.3 million deaths per year. Over 337 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work. The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year. In terms of shattered families and communities, the damage is irreparable. The ILO reaches out to people in the most hazardous occupations to help them make their workplace a decent and safe place to work. Director: Miguel Schapira; Producer: Karen Naets-Sekiguchi.
