Abstract SafeWork is the name of the new occupational safety and health programme developed by the ILO. It gives priority to the workers most exposed to hazardous conditions. Its goals are to develop preventive policies and programmes, to extend protection to the most vulnerable groups of workers, to train personel in government agencies and in employers' and workers' organizations, and to provide better information about the social and economic impact of workers' protection. The strategies and actions of the programme for the next few years are presented. The ILO expects that specialized occupational safety and health institutions will support the programme at a national level.
