The project in collaboration with its donor, the United States Department of Labor (USDOL), is set to finalize its CMEP by the second quarter of 2016. The CMEP will become the basis for monitoring and evaluating the project’s success or failure. Mr Wayne Bacale, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer of the project conducted consultations with government partners, the business sector and trade unions from 18 to 21 January 2016. The process allowed him to validate the proposed project indicators and determine the feasibility of collecting data and information.
The meeting with the business sector was done through the Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP), while trade union consultations were done jointly with the Federation of Free Workers (FFW), Philippine Government Employees Association (PGEA), Philippine Independent Public Service Employees (PIPSEA), Public Services Labor Independent Confederation (PSLINK), which presented challenges in collecting OSH data and the need to capacitate employers and workers.
The Building a Generation of Safe and Healthy Workers (Safeyouth@work Project) is a global project funded by the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) that aims to develop a culture of prevention in the country and improve the working conditions of young workers aged 15 to 24 in the construction, manufacturing and agriculture sectors. The Philippines is one of the pilot countries of the project apart from Viet Nam and Myanmar.
