LE PLAN D’ACTION SAFEYOUTH@WORK

 
Le 21e siècle a un rôle décisif à jouer dans l’élaboration de l’avenir du travail, notamment en garantissant les droits des travailleurs en termes de sécurité et de santé. Pour construire un futur plus prometteur, les jeunes devront collaborer entre eux ainsi qu’avec les adultes – collaboration dont ils définiront eux-mêmes les termes – afin de relever le défi de réduire les accidents du travail et les maladies professionnelles.

Il est indispensable que les jeunes s’engagent de manière plus résolue pour faire face aux enjeux sans cesse renouvelés de la mondialisation, et cette démarche devrait requérir toute l’attention des décideurs, des partenaires sociaux ainsi que de l’ensemble des membres de la société civile. Les institutions publiques doivent être en mesure d’aider les jeunes à relever le défi qui consiste à déterminer leur avenir, en leur accordant les ressources et l’espace civique nécessaires.

Le Plan d’action SafeYouth@Work de l’OIT est une occasion importante pour les jeunes, les mandants tripartites et la société civile de collaborer pour relever ce défi. Le XXIe Congrès mondial sur la sécurité et la santé au travail a, pour la première fois, offert une plateforme à 125 jeunes du monde entier leur permettant d’échanger directement avec des experts en sécurité et santé au travail (SST) venus du monde entier. Ce fut l’occasion pour les jeunes de faire entendre leur voix en vue d’obtenir des conditions de travail plus sûres et plus respectueuses de la santé, et de proposer des stratégies axées sur la jeunesse pour parvenir à cet objectif. Le Plan d’action SafeYouth@Work cherche à trouver des moyens encore plus innovants de réduire le taux élevé d’accidents dont sont victimes les jeunes travailleurs et de jeter les bases une culture de la prévention en matière de SST. Ces solutions permettront d’établir un contact direct avec les jeunes, tout en trouvant dans le même temps un écho auprès de la communauté de la SST, de façon à faire participer tous les acteurs clés impliqués dans la garantie d’un avenir du travail plus sûr et plus sain.

LE PLAN D’ACTION SAFEYOUTH@WORK

La cible 8.8 de l’objectif 8 de développement durable (ODD) à l’horizon 2030 – Défendre les droits des travailleurs, promouvoir la sécurité sur le lieu de travail et assurer la protection de tous les travailleurs, y compris les migrants, en particulier les femmes, et ceux qui ont un emploi précaire – offre une rare occasion de mobiliser les jeunes en tant que groupe d’intérêts d’une importance primordiale. Les ODD offrent aussi une plate-forme où les jeunes femmes et les jeunes hommes peuvent apporter leur contribution à une politique plus saine en matière de SST et à des interventions plus efficaces et plus durables.

La Déclaration de Philadelphie reconnaît l'obligation solennelle pour l'Organisation internationale du travail (OIT) «de seconder la mise en œuvre, parmi les différentes nations du monde, de programmes propres à réaliser une protection adéquate de la vie et de la santé des travailleurs dans toutes les occupations». L’OIT poursuit ces engagements dans le cadre de ses principales conventions et recommandations relatives à la SST.

En s’engageant en faveur de la sécurité et de la santé sur le lieu de travail lors du Congrès SafeYouth@Work, 125 jeunes travailleurs, employeurs, fonctionnaires gouvernementaux et étudiants ont acquis les connaissances et les compétences nécessaires pour mieux connaître et mieux comprendre leurs droits en matière de sécurité sur le lieu de travail. Le Congrès SafeYouth@Work leur a également permis de renforcer d’importantes compétences pratiques, telles que l’aptitude à régler les problèmes, l’esprit critique ou le sens des relations humaines.

En offrant aux jeunes l’occasion d’améliorer leurs compétences, de se familiariser avec les concepts de la SST, de créer des réseaux avec des experts en SST venus du monde entier, et de mener des actions collectives, le Congrès SafeYouth@Work a encouragé les jeunes à unir leurs efforts pour créer de lieux de travail plus sûrs et plus respectueux de la santé.

PLAN D’ACTION SAFEYOUTH@WORK: PRINCIPAUX ACTEURS ET DOMAINES D’INTERVENTION

Les mesures concrètes à prendre dans le cadre du Plan d’action SafeYouth@Work feront appel à divers acteurs décisifs pour limiter de manière durable la vulnérabilité des jeunes eu égard à la SST, en particulier:
• les gouvernements;
• les organisations de travailleurs;
• les organisations d’employeurs;
• les jeunes;
• les organisations de jeunes.

Pour chacun de ces acteurs, le Plan d’action SafeYouth@Work définira les mesures concrètes nécessaires pour conduire les changements relatifs à la SST en faveur des jeunes dans cinq domaines d’intérêt majeur:

• Recherche – Activités de recherche visant à renforcer les connaissances en matière de SST et à créer une plate-forme propre à encourager un engagement fondé sur des données factuelles de la part des jeunes et en faveur des jeunes;
• Education – Education et formation propres à encourager les attitudes et les connaissances dans le domaine du travail intégrant pleinement la sécurité et la santé, qui s’adressent aussi bien aux travailleurs qu’aux employeurs, jeunes ou âgés;
• Respect de la réglementation – Politique visant à faire respecter les prescriptions en matière de SST pour examiner de manière cohérente le comportement des (jeunes) travailleurs et employeurs et veiller à une allocation efficace des ressources;
• Sensibilisation – Initiatives de sensibilisation visant à promouvoir un changement de mentalité à l’égard de l’importance de la protection des jeunes travailleurs sur le lieu de travail;
• Réseaux – Constituer des réseaux et plateformes et optimiser ceux qui existent déjà, en vue de promouvoir l’échange de connaissances et de favoriser une culture de la prévention.

Group B

Our group proposes the idea of creating "Long March" event which requires the participants to do a long-distance walk. During the event, the participants are expected to do walking activity along with sort of demonstration atmosphere in order to represent the occupational safety and health principles that should be applied to the workers & employers. The long march participants consist of the employee, employers, trade union and students. The participants will wear the safety working equipment while they walk. The purpose is to raise people awareness and educate them visually and verbally by showing them which safety working equipment that should be used in the specific work field.

The long march event will be divided into 2 main events that will be held at the end of the event:

1. Employer declaration to implement Occupational safety and health principals to their employee.
2. Video and Picture (Animation) exhibition about the illustration of how to implement Occupational Safety and Health. For instance, there will be a video on how to use the safety working equipment according to the standard regulation. These videos and pictures can be freely downloaded by the employer or even the employee through the Ministry of Manpower website.

This event will be held on April 28th, 2018 at the same time with The World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

This event is fully supported by ILO, Indonesia Government, and various sponsorships.

Group Work Discussion Summary in Group A
Our team discussion consists of MoM representatives, Local Initiative for OSH Network (LION Indonesia) representative, Labour Union Act of Indonesia (SPSI) representative and facilitated by Youth Champions. Based on our group discussion, together we have several concrete actions to promote OSH for young workers, especially in the construction sector. We have divided the real actions into long-term and short-term actions. Below the list :
Long-term Actions :
1. We are urged ILO Jakarta(Mrs.Michiko) to continue supporting the Youth Champions from Indonesia to become the OSH Ambassador for Indonesia by convincing the Minister of Manpower of the Republic of Indonesia. So, the Minister can fully support the role of Youth Champions as OSH Ambassador for Indonesia by January at the National Occupational Safety and Health Month.
2. We strongly encourage the MoM of Republic of Indonesia to collaborate with Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education and academic institutions to held Youth4OSH Roadshow “OSH Goes to Campus” and “OSH Goes to School” with Indonesia Youth Champions as the volunteers.
3. We also encourage company participants of the UN Global Compact from Indonesia to create an awarding event especially to their young worker who makes a contribution to promoting a culture of prevention in their company.
4. We also encourage youth to establish a youth social community that concern about Youth4OSH issue. This social community can be consists of various stakeholders. For example, young employees, young workers, students, trade unions etc.
5. We also encourage the Government of Indonesia to create an annual SafeYouth@Work Congress in national level. So that youth in Indonesia can learn more about issues related to Youth4OSH.
Short-term Actions :
1. We strongly encourage MoM of Republic of Indonesia and OSH stakeholders collaborating with creative media worker or social media influencer by using any kind of social media platform to spread the key message of OSH, especially in the construction sector. For example, creating a pop-up advertisement on Facebook with the hierarchy of OSH as the content, creating an OSH web series through YouTube Channel, giving daily OSH tips through Line Ads etc. Based on Ministry of Communication data, Indonesia has 63 million internet user. This includes any kind of social media like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.
2. We also encourage government and OSH stakeholders to create a series of Coffee Talk and OSH Sharing event as a place for the young worker to effectively understand OSH issues and raise young worker awareness of creating a safer workplace.
In short, MoM can lead the tripartite process to improve the OSH protection of young workers in construction at sectoral and all workplace levels with all these concrete strategies.

Hi Everyone,
OSH literacy.org is a non-profit, educational social enterprise. We are from Ireland and a member of ENETOSH (European Network Education and Training in Occupational Safety and Health). ENETOSH comprises nearly 90 different institutional members from over 35 different countries. There are also affiliate organisations from different continents. Its main aim is to have OSH integrated into school curriculums.
OSH literacy is run voluntarily by teachers and OSH professionals, for teachers. It has projects in Asia, the Middle-East and Europe. We work with schools and other stakeholders. We train teachers and trainers with no prior OSH experience, on how to devise, develop, deliver and assess inclusive and effective OSH training. We are also a registered, accredited training centre so the courses we offer, including trainer and OSH, are all internationally accredited and a good CPD incentive for teachers to participate. Whenever possible, we strive to offer all our courses, certificates and services free of charge.
We are always looking for partners to work with. We share the same aims as ENETOSH to integrate OSH into mainstream education. So, as part of the Safe-Youth Campaign, if any schools, colleges, NGOs or training centres would like to get staff trained to deliver OSH training for free, please drop me an email and perhaps we can develop a Safe-Youth at Work Project together.
Yours,
Dave Magee

As a teacher and trainer, my suggestion is for the ILO SafeYouth@Work Action Plan to adopt, or at least raise awareness of, the ENETOSH Standards of Competencies (for OSH trainers, teachers and practitioners) as a basic foundation from which everyone can agree to proceed from.
The ILO SafeYouth@Work Action Plan should promote an awareness of these highly regarded international standards to organisations such as: governments, youth organisations, workers organizations, employers organisations, NGOs and other stakeholders. The standards can also be used as a foundation to positively influence and be a driver for change in the 5 identified areas of critical concern: Research, Education, Compliance, Advocacy and Networks.
The ENETOSH Standards are comprehensive. They ensure that young people are given the key skills to engage and be pro-active in their learning. They have been developed, and endorsed, over a number of years, by professionals and are mapped onto the European Qualifications Framework.
ENETOSH is a large and internationally respected organisation with nearly 90 institutional members from 35 different countries.
Instead of ‘reinventing the wheel’, why not save a lot of time, money and effort from the start and seek an international consensus, or at least a discussion, to adopt these pre-existing standards as a model of best practice when helping young people safely and successfully transition from education to employment.
The issue of safety at work for youth is very important. We know that the most critical time is within their first six months of employment and/or training. Therefore, it is imperative that they are empowered to make the right decisions and given the highest level of professional OSH training as possible. This can only be achieved if there are an accepted set of international professional standards.
This project is vast in its scope. We all have a duty of care to act expediently, properly and professionally. By adopting or raising awareness of the ENETOSH Standards we can ensure that everyone is starting from the same place and moving, or stepping, in the same direction to achieve our shared goals.
The ENETOSH Standard of Competencies are freely available to read and download and are available in a number of languages. www.enetosh.net

Hi everyone,
My suggestion for the ILO SafeYouth@Work action plan is give each of the Youth Champions a professional email address that they can use for all communications related to their work on OSH. As a local pathways fellow, I have seen how a professional email increases the chances of stakeholders taking me seriously when I initiate conversations with them on a particular topic. This definitely set's a person apart from many other busy-bodies especially in the civil society space. A professional e-mail will also increase the confidence of stakeholders in the youth champions when they initiate formal correspondences and when they claim to be youth champions involved in OSH for young workers. In addition to these obvious benefits to the youth champions, it will also give the ILO a back-end access to the efforts that each Youth champion is making either at a personal level or on behalf of the organization they represent because they can monitor all communication effected through the email address.

So, my suggestion is: The ILO SafeYouth@Work team creates a customized email address for each of the youth champions. My suggestion would be example@safeyouth.org or example@safeyouthatwork.org.

That's my two cents and I hope that it's helpful. Thank you!
