The study tour is part of efforts by the ILO to Enhance Labour Governance, Inspection and Working Conditions in Response to COVID- 19 in Iraq, with the support of the European Union. One of the key elements under the programme is to strengthen the labour inspection system and improve occupational safety and health in line with international labour standards, through policy development and capacity building.

The tour included meetings and field visits to highlight several elements related to safety at work and labour inspection. This includes the use of digitalization in the management of labour inspection and innovative approaches related to Occupational Safety and Health.
