Jordan needs 'better application' of occupational safety, health standards at workplace

"The National Consultation on the Way Forward for a National Policy on Occupational Safety and Health" supports the government's agenda in ensuring decent work for and creating a culture of prevention as it relates to OSH.

This year, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (SAFEDAY) and the World Day Against Child Labour (WDACL) are coming together in a joint campaign to improve the safety and health of young workers and end child labour.

The paper, titled "Occupational Safety and Health in Jordan", conceded that "there is a good harmony between the Jordanian legislation and the relevant worldwide standards on occupational health and safety, especially those contained in the ILO conventions on Social Security and Public Health". It is an awareness-raising campaign meant to focus global attention on the magnitude of the problem and on how promoting and creating a safety and health culture can help reduce the number of work-related deaths and injuries.

During the opening session of the conference, the occupational safety and health awards were presented various companies.

STA-SAFE member David Caldicott said there was an extraordinary range of substances detected. "We will win in the end", he said. They were found to contain the lethal N-Ethylpentylone chemical, which has caused several of mass overdoses across the globe.

JLW also criticised the "lack of comprehensive and accurate statistical databases on occupational accidents, injuries and diseases that take place in Jordan, with the exception of the statistics issued by the SSC".

According to the ILO, an estimated 2.78 million people die every year through work related accidents, injuries and illnesses with an estimated global economic impact of about 3.94 per cent of annual global GDP.

The sensors in the jacket sends signals to the control room indicating the condition of the worker, and thus take appropriate action in the workplace thanks to the tracking system working by solar power and includes an audio communication system.

In his words "the campaign is premised on the higher vulnerability of young workers to Occupational safety and health hazards and calls for co-ordinated action to stem the tide with a view to building a next generation that is safe and healthy".
