Preparations for new ILO code of practice on safety and health

Negotiations will start next month on a new ILO code of practice for safety and health in agriculture. The code is meant to compliment Convention 184 by giving practical guidance for use in the workplace. IUF has been asked to nominate the Workers Group team of 8 people and this is being done in consultation with IUF regional structures. The AWTG has held a number of workshops to brainstorm on suggestions for the code's contents and has already provided ideas and suggestions for areas to be covered in the code to the ILO.
