Sessions

TS2 - Regulating OSH in future of work - New forms of work, workers, employers, workplaces and working relationships
Lead: ILO; Organizer: ILO

Labour markets, business models and technology are changing at a fast pace. New forms of work using new technologies such as platforms, the increase of self-employed and often blurred employment status and the interconnection between companies at national and cross border level makes it difficult for regulators to effectively govern occupational safety and health, both in terms of responsiveness of legislation as well as the regulatory capacity of compliance mechanisms. The technical session will debate these challenges and introduce innovative practices on how are countries preparing for the future of work.

Youth Spotlight

Building on the [email protected] Congress held in Singapore in 2017, the Youth Spotlight is a lively, interactive session designed to spur global action to improve occupational safety and health (OSH) for young workers. This session will bring together youth champions around the world, policy makers and experts to reflect on how to engage youth into prevention and to integrate their voice and vision in building back better. It will also explore young workers’ expectations from institutional partners to continue supporting them in promoting OSH.

The Youth Spotlight is also closely connected with other programme elements including the International Media Festival for Prevention, Braindates and keynote speeches where OSH for young workers will be highlighted, discussed and advanced.
