||Making_green_jobs_safe_[INTERNET_FREE_ACCESS] [in English]
||This editorial argues that while green jobs may be perceived to be safe, this is not necessarily the case considering that their prime purpose is to produce green products and services aimed at preserving or restoring environmental quality. It provides examples of where environmental protection has led to increased hazards for workers and recommends that occupational safety and health be duly considered on an equal footing with environmental protection.
