National Occupational Safety and Health Systems and Programmes

In pursuit of a safe and healthy working environment for all workers, each country has to develop an effective national OSH system as a collaborative effort of the government and social partners. Such a system should consist of various elements including legislation and compliance assurance mechanisms as well as training and information network. The system needs to be continuously improved through the formulation and implementation of national OSH programmes as guided by the Promotional Framework for Occupational Safety and Health Convention (No.187) and Recommendation (No.197).
