International Women’s Day 2023

In June 2022, the 110th International Labour Conference recognized health and safety as one of the Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work; yet when we develop policies and measures to protect workers, we, many times, work on a one-size-fits-all solution, not considering that segregation, gender roles and our own biological differences can increase the vulnerability of women workers in certain types of work.

For International Women’s Day, we are launching our practical guide for delegates as a way of starting the conversation in our affiliated trade unions.

This 8th of March we want to make the invisible, visible. Share our material, posters and social media posts to start the conversation.

Let’s rise together for women, let’s rise together for health and safety at work!

Supporting Women’s Health at Work

Internationa women’s day 2022

Women and men may be exposed to different physical and psychological risks at the workplace and for OHS policies to be effective, they have to be based on more accurate information about the relationship between health and gender roles. It is only by making visible these differences that we can create and improve prevention strategies to protect our workers so this 8th of March we want to focus on the importance of including a gender perspective in OHS.
