Abstract This report was prepared following an ILO mission to China (27 October to 17 November 1994), undertaken at the request of the Chinese Government to review programmes on working conditions and environmental protection. The report recommends a number of priority actions for the implementation and improvement of OSH programmes, including: establishing a national tripartite advisory body on OSH; formulating more comprehensive OSH legislation; improving the mechanisms and capacity for the enforcement of OSH legislation; establishing a national system for classification, marking and labelling of chemicals; using chemical safety data sheets; developing and implementing special OSH programmes for the coal mining and constriction industries; strengthening the capacity of employers' and workers' organizations to support and assist their members in improving working conditions and the environment.
