Chap.VI concerns the protection of women and adolescents, in particular the prohibition of employment in certain physically demanding or dangerous jobs of pregnant women, mothers within six months of giving birth and young persons. Chap.X deals with labour protection: guarantees of safety and working conditions; medical examination and health care for workers.
