In some countries, measures are being taken and sectoral protocols are being adopted for the progressive resumption of activity after the lockdown caused by the coronavirus. From the point of view of safety and health at work, governments have established protection and prevention measures aimed at minimising the occupational risks derived from the gradual and progressive return to work. This webinar focuses on safety and health measures for the care of workers in the sector and care measures for the workforce that, in general, uses public transportation to get to work.

This webinar is part of a cycle of three dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and experiences on the sectoral agreements that are being adopted in the countries of the Southern Cone to preserve health and safety conditions in the gradual return to workplaces in three specific areas: construction, public transport, and work in private homes.

This activity is co-organised by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security of Argentina, the Superintendency of Occupational Risks of Argentina, the Office of the International Labour Organization Southern Cone, and by the Social Policies area of the European Union programme EUROsociAL+.
