Human Rights and Business Dilemmas Forum: Health & Safety

Explores how responsible businesses can best ensure that workers within their supply chains located in developing and emerging growth countries enjoy adequate safety protection within the workplace. In particular, the webinar examines the challenges faced by companies with supply chains in regions with weak or poorly enforced national occupational health and safety regulations or those that have limited resources to upgrade their systems to international standards, as well as companies that witness a rise in the costs of production due to investment in health and safety education for their suppliers. Additionally, the webinar explores a range of relevant good practice as well as examples of multi-national companies that have addressed this issue.
