The General Construction, Manufacturing and Quarries Workers’ Union (GCMQWU) of Ghana has urged employers to adhere to safety measures at the workplace and also provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to reduce workplace accidents and deaths. Health and Safety is a fundamental right for all workers. #SaveLivesAtWork#IWMD2021
The General Construction, Manufacturing and Quarries Workers’ Union of Ghana (GCMQWU) and the Zhongmei Group Engineering Company Ltd. on 12 April signed a declaration recognising the importance of occupational health and safety and calling on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to declare it as a fundamental worker’s right.
The signing of the declaration is part of BWI and the European Federation of Building and Woodworkers’ (EFBWW) global campaign to build an alliance for workers’ health and safety leading to this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day on 28 April.
The union said that the declaration was the first to be signed by an employer since the launch of the campaign last week. #SaveLivesAtWork#IWMD21
