The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered one of the worst jobs crises, as it affected around 29 million workers in Indonesia by August 2020, adding to the existing pool of about seven million jobseekers. As a result, 2.6 million workers lost their jobs and 24 million workers suffered from cuts in hours of work and wages due to the pandemic.
The International Labour Organization (ILO), together with the Ministry of Manpower and the Government of Japan, have joined forces in restoring the employment situation by strengthening the occupational safety and health (OSH) management system at the company level to ensure business sustainability and the protection of workers. The other goal is to build positive OSH culture for the creation of a safe and healthy working environment nationwide.
