Training materials

To support the implementation of the sectoral Conventions and Recommendations, as well as to assist the improvement of working conditions at the sectoral level, a rich body of sectoral tools have been developed, translated and widely disseminated.

Training programmes are implemented at regional and national levels based on materials specifically designed to address priority issues, such as prevention of HIV and AIDS, promotion of occupational safety and health, and enforcement of labour inspection in particular sectors.
