Health and Safety at Work

Employer cares

Your employer, in all fairness, should make sure that the work process is safe.

Free protection

Your employer should provide protective clothing and other necessary safety precautions for free.


You and your colleagues should receive training in all work related safety and health aspects and you should have been shown the emergency exits.

Labour Inspection System

In order to ensure workplace safety and health, a central, independent and efficient labour inspection system should be present.                                                                                                                                                  

ILO conventions on health and safety at work:        

  • Most ILO OSH Conventions deal with very specific Occupational Safety hazards, such as asbestos and chemicals. Convention 155 (1981) is the relevant general convention here.                                                               
  • Labour Inspection Convention: 81 (1947)
