Webinar occupational safety & health management systems

Webinar occupational safety & health management systems
Workers are among those most exposed to hazardous chemicals and waste in various sectors around the world, and particularly in developing countries, economies in transition and in the informal economy. Strong occupational safety and health management systems (OSH MS) are essential for protecting workers, their families and the wider community from the harmful effects of toxic chemicals. This webinar will provide an overview of ILO’s resources for developing and maintaining OSH management systems, followed by examples from existing national systems. 

A webinar will be organized on Wednesday, 15 July 2020 at 10:00 Geneva time. You can register here
