Cowork4YOUTH is about examining and enhancing youth employment policies, but also what about safety in work environments?
According to the International Labour Organization, social dialogue is considered to be a key factor for building and maintaining a preventative safety and health culture, and refers to all types of consultation-negotiation, as well as the simple exchange of information between governments, employers and workers.
28th of April is marked as “World Day for Safety and Health at Work” and it is of high importance to cultivate a mindset of thinking ahead, instead of learning from incidents that could have been prevented otherwise; therefore, social dialogue, could and should be used to voice concerns around safety and health at work.
