A conference-discussion was held on "The importance of occupational safety and health for employers".
In February 2020, a conference-discussion was held on "The importance of occupational safety and health for employers" organized by RUEA with the support of the International Labor Organization.
The expectations and recommendation of employers and partners to ensure the system of occupational safety and health (OSH) in Armenia were discussed within the framework of the conference, with the participation of employers and social partners. As a result, a preliminary approach will be established as to what kind of OSH system should exist in Armenia. On that basis, RUEA will develop a OSH policy document in collaboration with international experts.
The existence of an effective OSH system is vital, as it:
- Complies with the requirements of international conventions,
- Promotes labor law,
- Adheres to the principle of equal pay for equal work for men and women,
- Exclude forced labor, etc.
During the conference, representatives of the public and private sectors, as well as international and local experts in various fields made reports on the above-mentioned topics.
