    08 April 2022

    The ILO aims to promote activities to better engage ministries of labour, employers’ and workers’ organizations, as well as other world of work stakeholders, in the sound management of chemicals at all levels of governance. The development of an ILO Framework for Action on Chemicals and Waste (Framework) is envisaged to define action areas and priorities for the engagement of world of work actors on chemicals management at the international level. The Framework aims to identify concrete actions where the labour sector has either a lead or important supporting role to play in the sound management of chemicals, recognizing the need for multi-sectoral cooperation. This paper is available for comment by constituents and interested parties.

To this end, it identifies the essential elements of national OSH normative frameworks stemming from international labour standards, ILO codes of practice and guidelines and cutting-edge national OSH laws. It captures and discusses to the extent possible various policy and design choices and showcases examples of legislative elements from countries with different legal traditions to enrich and broaden the users’ perspective.
