Two ILO Safety and Health Conventions in Effect in Turkey

Each year, mining and construction rank among the most dangerous sectors in terms of occupational accidents and fatalities, both internationally and in Turkey.

Two International Labour Organization Conventions on Safety and Health in Construction and Mining took effect Turkey as of March 23, with the Turkish government committing to boost its efforts to develop and promote a safety and health culture in both of these important sectors that also are among Turkey's most hazardous sectors, according to ILO.

The government of Turkey became the 27th and 30th ILO member state to become bound by Conventions Nos. 167 and 176, respectively. They establish a clear framework of responsibilities, rights, and obligations and provide for detailed technical preventive and protective measures; Convention No. 176 also includes a requirement to develop and carry out a coherent national policy on safety and health in mining after consultations with both management and labor.

Each year, mining and construction rank among the most dangerous sectors in terms of occupational accidents and fatalities, both internationally and in Turkey, and this record was why ILO adopted 167 and 176 to complement the generally applicable Occupational Safety and Health Convention, 1981 (No. 155). Turkey has been committed to Convention No. 155 as well as the Occupational Health Services Convention, 1985 (No. 161) since 2005, as well as the Promotional Framework for Occupational Safety and Health Convention, 2006 (No. 187) since 2014.
