Belgium ratified in 2011 the Occupational Safety and Health Convention, 1981 (No. 155), the Occupational Health Services Convention, 1985 (No. 161), the Labour Administration Convention, 1978 (No. 150) and the Employment Promotion and Protection against Unemployment Convention, 1988 (No. 168). The ILO-Brussels office hopes that this renewed action will also result in speedy internal approvals by the regions and the federal state for the ILO consolidated maritime labour Convention and by the federal state for the Convention on Domestic Workers, 2011 (No.189).
