Better national occupational safety and health policies, institutional and regulatory frameworks, that are also integrated into crisis response, are needed, says the International Labour Organization (ILO) in a report, released on World Day for Safety and Health at Work. The day promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally. The report, ‘Anticipate, prepare and respond to crises. Invest now resilient OSH systems’ examines risk prevention and management relating to the pandemic, and analyses other health and safety risks associated with the changing work arrangements arising from virus control measures.
