In early 2017, the International Labor Organization (ILO) launched a regional project entitled “Youth4OSH: OSH for Young Workers and Young Employers in Global Supply Chain-Building a Culture of Prevention”. The goal of the Youth4OSH Project is to reduce workplace injuries, fatalities, and occupational diseases through increased preventative safety actions by young workers and young employers in the Philippines. The project aims to support networks and organizations to launch new initiatives to promote OSH awareness and preventative action among young workers and/or young employers through the use of an online communications platform.

In support of this project, the International Labour Organization (ILO) organized a one-day training for those who deal with research, communications, IT, and outreach and advocacy to train them on the basic and advance use of the Youth4OSH Communication Platform. The training illustrated what the Youth4OSH Communication Platform can do for ECOP in advancing OSH related communication and outreach and advocacy. The training was also utilized to capture and document suggestions, feedback, gaps and/or additional business requirements or use case from the participants.

The platform is expected to be fully operational by October 2018 in four countries namely Myanmar, Philippines, Viet Nam, and Indonesia.

Prior to this training, Mr. Johan Arvling and Ms. Caroline Ubaldo, ILO’s consultants for this project, met with Mr. Ray Tadeo, ECOP Training Manager, and Mr. Neil Don Orillaneda, ECOP Regional Affairs Coordinator, to discuss what ECOP can commit as a sustainability partner organization and what benefits ECOP’s members can get in utilizing the communication platform.
