Améliorer la sécurité et la santé dans les microentreprises et les petites et moyennes entreprises: une vue d’ensemble des initiatives et des mécanismes de mise en oeuvre existants

This report focuses on micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and their specific characteristics that are likely to have an impact on occupational safety and health (OSH) outcomes.

The report identifies and analyses examples of support mechanisms and incentives that governments and other actors use in various contexts to enable outreach to MSMEs and promote safe and healthy working environments. The report also describes a large number of ILO tools and programmes focused on increasing productivity in MSMEs, particularly those with the main objective of improving OSH.

The report has been drafted in the framework of the ILO Safety + Health for All Flagship programme, and particularly within the three-year project “Upholding sustainable delivery mechanisms to promote OSH in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)” funded by the Republic of Korea.

The report is complemented by a series of five case studies conducted in Cameroon, Colombia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Tunisia, published under the title: Safety and health in micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises: A collection of five case studies.
