The National Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Council (DK3N) of Indonesia, with support from the ILO through its Youth4OSH Project, is taking the ownership of the Youth4OSH web portal. The portal was developed to serve as an online platform for stakeholders in pilot Southeast Asia countries in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar and Viet Nam.

To finalize the development process of the portal, DK3N and the ILO conducted a two-day web portal training in Jakarta from 30-31 January. The training was a follow-up to the introduction session and an initial training to familiarize prospective users conducted last year.

The portal will be useful for DK3N as an interactive communications platform to support networks and organizations in promoting OSH awareness and preventive actions among workers and employers, particularly young workers and young employers."

“The portal will be useful for DK3N as an interactive communications platform to support networks and organizations in promoting OSH awareness and preventive actions among workers and employers, particularly young workers and young employers,” stated Amri AK, Head of Secretariat of DK3N.

The Youth4OSH portal was initially introduced by the ILO in April 2018 during the commemoration of the World Day for Safety and Health. After the introduction, an initial training on the portal’s functions and usage was held in August 2018.

After last year training, the portal has undergone some improvements and has been equipped with new features based on feedbacks and inputs from DK3N. These improvements are aimed to improve the visual appeal of the web portal.

The portal is planned to be officially launched in April 2019, in conjunction with the commemoration of the World Day for Safety and Health. The establishment of the portal is also marked the continuous efforts taken by Indonesia, with support of the ILO, in promoting OSH awareness and culture prevention for young people in Indonesia.

The portal developed was initiated by the ILO through its Youth4OSH programme, aimed to reduce workplace injuries, fatalities and occupational diseases through inculcating a preventive safety and health culture among young workers and young employers. The programme is supported by the US Council for International Business (USCIB).
