Safety and Security at Work

A Systems Analysis for Moldova’s Decent Work Country Programme 2021-2024

Every four years, the International Labour Organization (ILO) develops a Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) for Moldova, which provides a medium-term planning framework for the ILO’s activities in country.
To support more effective targeting for Moldova’s next DWCP – covering 2021-2024 – “systems analyses” have been conducted to identify the key challenges and opportunities in two priority areas: youth employment and safety and security at work.

This analysis of the safety and security at work system in Moldova is a new application of the systems approach within the ILO. It looks at the system around a larger decent work challenge – safety and security at work - rather than analysing a the system in a specific sector as has traditionally done.

The analysis centres on two overlapping themes – the occupational safety and health system and the social security system. After providing a brief overview of the challenges in both systems, it identifies the key constraints within them, and then unpacks the underlying causes to these constraints. It closes by identifying priorities which can be adopted in the Moldova DWCP to address key constraints and improve safety and security at work Moldova.
