The new project aims to advance the law on occupational safety and health in line with International Labour Standards and EU Directives. The project will also reform the labour inspectorate, train social partners, and deliver campaigns for safety and health at work. The ILO will closely work with UN Women to cover the gender aspects of safety and health at work. The project is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) through the Embassy of Sweden in Kosovo and covers the period from April 2022 to September 2023.

This new project builds on key preparatory work also supported by Sweden that produced a detailed Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) profile of Kosovo, the draft Kosovo OSH programme 2022 to 27, a multiannual training strategy for labour inspectors, and a gender review of the legal framework on OSH. The project will be implemented under the framework of the ILO Flagship Programme Safety + Health for All.
