    Using the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work - Guidelines for the transport sector

    01 January 2005

    These guidelines use the code of practice on HIV/AIDS, and its accompanying training manual. The present guidelines for the transport sector look first (in Section I) at some of the specific problems facing transport – the emphasis is on road transport but consideration is also given to other transport industries. They then present an overview of initiatives that have been taken, first at the legal and policy level then at the workplace, to address the occupational and behavioural risks associated with transport. Section II incorporates examples of action and guidance based on lessons learnt. The final section takes the reader through the code of practice and training manual, and shows where transport sector operators and authorities can find relevant provisions, explanations and advice to help them develop and implement HIV/AIDS programmes.
