Background
Workplaces claim more than 2.3 million deaths per year, out of which 350,000 are fatal accidents and close to 2 million are work-related diseases. In addition, 313 million accidents occur on the job annually. The economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year. Deaths and injuries take a particularly heavy toll in developing countries, where a large part of the population is engaged in hazardous activities, such as agriculture, fishing and mining. Safety and health at work is therefore to be seen as fundamental human right and is essential for inclusive economic development.

In 2016, the ILO LABADMIN/OSH Branch launched the Global Action for Prevention on Occupational Safety and Health Programme (OSH-Gap) to achieve real reductions in the incidence of work-related deaths, injuries and diseases and the creation of a global culture of prevention. This programme responds to a critical demand for assistance in the area of OSH by low and lower-middle income countries and a growing need for increased collaboration and coordination among stakeholders to achieve sustainable impact. One of the five key objectives of this programme is to generate increased demand for the safety and health of workers.

The Project OSH for Young Workers and Young Employers in Global Supply Chains – Building a Culture of Prevention will be implemented as part of this programme. The goal of this Project is to reduce workplace injuries, fatalities and occupational diseases through increased preventative and safety actions by young workers and young employers in Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines and Viet Nam. The Project will focus on the young workers and young employers working in the manufacturing and construction supply chains.

In order to reach this objective, the project will develop and pilot test various tools, methodologies and strategies to raise workplace safety awareness and to generate public demand for improvements in national OSH systems. It will be articulated around 3 main components: (1) the creation and piloting of tools and communication materials to educate young workers and young employers on OSH issues; (2) the development and/or activation of networks of intermediaries able to effectively promote OSH awareness and action in their workplace and communities and (3) the empowerment of young workers and young employers at the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health to be held in Singapore. By the end of the project, young workers and young employers are expected to take concrete actions to reduce workplace injuries, fatalities and occupational diseases.  The project will be leaded by an international CTA and supported with one admin staff stationed in Jakarta.
