Side Sessions


by International Labour Organization (ILO) The purpose of this ILO-led side-session is to share best practice approaches to improve occupational safety and health in the industry, including through due diligence and responsible business conduct and discuss ways to use the new ILO Code of practice on OSH in the textiles, clothing, leather and footwear industries as a tool to that effect. This session should allow governments to revisit and update OSH and related legislation, guidance, inspection and training; employers and workers organizations to update their guidance and inspection guidelines; brands to validate or update their own OSH guidance; and international organizations and other stakeholders to support new initiatives to improve OSH in the industry.
