Date : 28-30 October 2015 Venue : Jakarta Indonesia

The General Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) was endorsed by the Third Islamic Conference of Labour Ministers (ICLM) held in Jakarta, Indonesia on 28-30 October 2015. The guideline document was originally drafted by the members of the OIC Occupational Safety and Health Network (OIC OSHNET) following a workshop on “Occupational Safety and Health Regulations and Standards” that was jointly organised with the Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries (SMIIC), Islamic Development Bank (IDB) and the Ministry of Labour and Social Security of Turkey in Istanbul, Turkey on 4 May 2014.

The document contains articles of the General OSH requirements, risk assessment, training, physical factors, chemical factors, biological factors, ergonomics, machinery and hand tools, safe working at height, emergency and personal protective equipment and aims to standardize the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) applications in OIC member countries, by providing guidance in carrying out their national operations.
