International Labour Organisation supports Labour Inspection Office in Georgia to join global campaign of World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2021

News | 27 April 2021
TBILISI, GEORGIA - Aiming to raise awareness on the importance of resilient national occupational safety and health (OSH) systems, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) official campaign posters “Anticipate, prepare and respond to crises - Invest Now in Resilient Occupational Safety and Health Systems” have been printed in Georgian and English languages.

The posters will be distributed by labour inspectors during inspection visits to raise awareness among employers, workers and OSH specialists. The summary leaflet presenting the conclusions of the World Day report prepared by ILO has been translated into Georgian language, thus supporting the Labour Inspection Office in its information and awareness activities in the OSH area. The report examines how the current crisis demonstrates the importance of strengthening OSH systems, including occupational health services, at both the national and undertaking level.

The global virtual webinar on 28 April will mark the global launch of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2021. Registration on the event is available here.

The ILO support to Labour Inspection Office in Georgia was made possible thanks to the ILO-Danida Project “Inclusive Labour Market for Job Creation in Georgia” funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
