Global Occupational Safety and Health Project Funded for $10.5M

The money will go to a technical cooperation project from the International Labor Organization.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs has awarded a $10.5 million cooperative agreement to the International Labor Organization (ILO) for a technical cooperation project to support ILO's new Global Initiative on Occupational Safety and Health.

"Too many workers worldwide suffer from dangerous and unhealthy working conditions. We need a greater focus on prevention and enforcement efforts, particularly for vulnerable workers in hazardous sectors," said Deputy Undersecretary for International Affairs Carol Pier. "We look forward to partnering with the International Labor Organization, a global leader in promoting and protecting labor rights, including the right to a safe and healthy workplace."

The project will begin with pilot projects to increase the capacity of governments, employers and workers in Vietnam and the Philippines to improve occupational safety and health, particularly for working youth. It will also include efforts to build and strengthen partnerships across international and regional organizations to share best practices, raise awareness and contribute to improved legislation and enforcement.
