Under the ILO Flagship Programme on OSH Global Action for Prevention, a U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) funded project “Building a Generation of Safe and Healthy Workers: Safe & Healthy Youth”is being implemented. The Project’s Strategic Objective is to increase the capacity of countries to address occupational safety and health at work, with particular attention to the occupational safety and health of working youth and young adults.
