Technical cooperation activities in occupational safety and health

Through its development cooperation work, the LABADMIN/OSH Branch assists ILO Member States and social partners to:
1) strengthen labour governance through improvements in labour law enforcement and increased compliance at the workplace, by enhancing national capacities and strengthening labour administration and inspection systems;
2) reduce the number of work-related deaths, injuries and diseases, by creating a culture of prevention and promoting management systems approach to occupational safety and health.

We operate through a network of labour inspection, labour administration and OSH specialists at headquarters and in the field, as well as with project managers at global and country levels. Our support includes assistance in the scoping and design of new development cooperation initiatives, the provision of technical and administrative support and guidance to ongoing projects, as well as the capitalization of experiences and good practice, with a focus on developing countries.
