    A Stepwise Approach to Risk Assessment for Hazardous Child Labour

    01 October 2014

    This guideline is geared towards individuals who are interested in determining if youth of legal employment age and less than 18 years are engaged in hazardous work, one of the worst forms of child labour by international Conventions. Hazardous work involves the conditions of the work environment itself, as well as the dangerous job activities sometimes assigned to children.

    Instrument for Psychosocial Assessment of Child Workers: Background & References

    01 October 2014

    Child workers’ psychological health still receives little attention from either researchers or practitioners compared to other aspects of child labour. In order to gain a fuller understanding of the implications that work has for a child’s psychological functioning and development, the ILO commissioned the development of an instrument that could be used to document the effects. The purpose of this paper is to present the research evidence on which each of the questions in this instrument is based and to show how the instrument incorporates, builds upon and expands on existing tools and concepts. It is also intended to serve as a reference that can facilitate further work on this subject or as a quick review of research and instruments in this field.

  6. Training manual

    Eliminating hazardous child labour and occupational safety, health and environmental risks: A manual for agents of change in cocoa communities in Ghana

    16 September 2014

    This Manual was produced by ILO-IPEC and GAWU to serve as an essential training tool for workers in the rural communities, especially cocoa farmers, to promote and ensure safety at the work place. Collaboration between workers’ and employers’ organizations is one of the most effective strategies to ensure safe practices at work places. Hopefully the production of this Manual will go a long way to help the community and farmers as well as agriculture extension officers in their training efforts.
