Launch of Joint Cooperation between ILO-Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry on the Prevention of COVID-19 at Workplaces

The joint cooperation will contribute to risk control of the COVID-19 transmission among workers in workplaces, as well as strengthen both employers and workers capacity in occupational safety and health (OSH).

The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) have joined forces to strengthen the protection of workers as well as business continuity by improving occupational safety and health (OSH) management and COVID-19 prevention measures in the workplace.

The two partners will sign a formal agreement to enforce the initiative pertaining to workplace strategies to prevent and reduce transmission and maintain healthy business operations in each workplace, while bolstering awareness on the preventive culture through ILO’s COVID-19 risk assessment service. The ILO provides this free of charge risk assessment service to more than 1,500 workplaces in Indonesia.
