    Improving Safety and Health at Work through a Decent Work Agenda

    26 November 2012

    The equivalent of four plane crashes each and every day. This is how many people go out to work each day and don't return home because they die in a workplace accident. Thousands more die of work-related diseases. But these accidents and illnesses are preventable. Coordinated action at national and enterprise level is improving workplace safety and health, as well as directly benefiting business productivity, cost-saving and competitiveness. The EU and the ILO's programme on Safety and Health at Work and the environment SafeWork have engaged in a joint project to improve safety and health at work in five countries across three regions of the world: Honduras, Malawi, The Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, and Zambia. The successes reached in these countries can be replicated around the world, leading to safe and healthy, decent workplaces for all.

    Kukes miners learn about their rights in health and safety at work

    17 May 2011

    Vlahna Village, like many in the region of Kukes, has been highly affected by youth migration, a prevalence of under-employment and informal working practices. However, thanks to new direct investment from abroad, the nearby Vlahna Mine, home to the second largest chromium reserve in Albania and one of the largest in Europe, is being put to productive use once more following its closure in 2006. To ensure the transition from informal to formal employment, 40 miners are receiving training in occupational safety and health as part of their recruitment, to ensure improved working conditions and long-term job security for the local community. The training programme has been realized thanks to the One UN Joint Programme Youth Employment and Migration, funded by the Government of Spain through the MDG Achievement Fund.
