Surging water trapped at least 18 workers in the privately owned Has Sekerler mine, officials and reports said — an event likely to raise even more concerns about the nation's poor workplace safety standards. The trade unions repeatedly have criticised the country’s poor safety standards and superficial government inspections in many of the country's mines. The International Labour Organisation organised a National Tripartite Meeting on Improving Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in Mining in Turkey. Government, workers’ and employers’ representatives and other relevant stakeholders concluded with agreement on the main elements of a roadmap on how to improve occupational safety and health in the industry.
