Awareness Programs

Safe working environment is a basic need for especially informal economy workers. Unfortunately, in Nepal, a large number of workers are unaware about the use of safety measures which sometimes lead to major workplace accidents. Consequently, many workers suffer serious injuries, physical disability and even death due to the lack of required awareness on occupational health. Thus with the purpose of bringing about awareness among the workers on their occupational health and safety, ANTUF organizes awareness campaigns from time to time. In particular, ANTUF has conducted several OSH awareness trainings/orientations to empower the existing OSH committees throughout the nation. It has also been pressing both employers and the government to implement OHS policy to ensure safe working environment in all workplace settings. The initiative taken by ANTUF has brought about many positive changes in workplace environment and saved life of thousands of workers.
