About


The SafeYouth@Work MEDIA COMPETITION is organized by the International Labour Organization, Labour Administration, Labour Inspection and Occupational Safety and Health Branch (LABADMIN/OSH) in collaboration with the International Media Festival for Prevention (IMFP) and the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, taking place 3-6 September in Singapore.

Concurrently and building on the visibility created by the SafeYouth@Work MEDIA COMPETITION, ILO is also organizing the SafeYouth@Work Congress in collaboration with the Ministry of Manpower (MoM) of Singapore, to give youth a voice to influence the international dialogue on the promotion of safe work for young people. The SafeYouth@Work Congress will take place from 2-6 September 2017 in Singapore and will bring together 200 young people from around the world.

The SafeYouth@Work MEDIA COMPETITION and the SafeYouth@Work Congress are key components of the SafeYouth@Work PROJECT – a global project undertaken with support from U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking. The Project seeks to help create safer workplaces for young workers and help build a culture of prevention on occupational safety and health (OSH).
