Measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 have drawn attention to the value of paid and unpaid domestic work, mostly carried out by women. The Covid-19 crisis reveals the vulnerability of paid domestic workers, especially with regard to the risks of contagion from the disease, given that their workplace (a home) is indoors and their tasks involve interaction with the members of the home they serve.
This webinar is part of a cycle of four dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and experiences on the measures that are being adopted in the countries of the Southern Cone to preserve health and safety conditions in the gradual return to workplaces in four specific areas: construction, public transport, and work in private homes and in markets.
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, the EU-LAC Foundation, and by the area of Social Policies of the European Union programme EUROsociAL+.
