22nd Regional General Council - Resolution No. 6: Occupational Safety and Health is a Fundamental Right

Oct 2022

The ITUC-Asia Pacific's Regional General Council welcomes the decision of the 110th International Labour Conference on June 2022 to adopt the resolution to include a safe and healthy working environment in the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) framework of fundamental principles and right at work.  

In the resolution, the ITUC-Asia Pacific demands international organisations, including the inter-governmental organisations and the international/regional financial institutions, to work together for coordinated policies and actions to ensure occupational health and safety governance in their decisions and projects throughout global supply chains, as well as to improve national capacity on occupational health and safety with social dialogue being promoted, in particular, in developing countries.
