Macedonia: Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia (CCM)

Become part of the union and do it significant change. Join CELEBRATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR SAFETY AND HEALTH AT WORK

The Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia (CCM) as a representative trade union and social partner in the country is an active factor in the creation of policies for economic and social development, which is part of the OSH area.

Marking the World Health and Safety Day – April 28, we emphasize that providing healthy and safe working conditions for workers is a priority in the engagement of SSM.

The safe conditions in the companies are the basic assumption for the smooth performance of the work tasks of the workers, because they are a guarantee for the preservation of the life and health of the workers, improvement of the work and increasing the productivity of the labor in the companies.

Healthy and safe working conditions are a joint activity and tripartite unity of all social partners in the state, which by means of mutually coordinated action should contribute to the improvement of the overall system for ensuring safe and secure working conditions.

Through the social dialogue, with the active participation of SSM, the National OSH Strategy 2016-2020 was adopted, as well as the Action Plan, and in the country there is a National Board for OSH as a tripartite expert and advisory body for the OSH.

It is the primary responsibility of employers to ensure healthy and safe working conditions for workers in working environments, but workers are also responsible. This means that employers are obliged to invest in secure technologies, in promoting workplace conditions and in preventing occupational diseases and injuries at work.

Workers also have an equally important and responsible role in ensuring healthy and safe working conditions, in this direction SSM is committed to regulate the precise, concrete and active role of the president of the trade union organization and the representative of the employees for safety and health in the companies .

This year, activities are undertaken to review the state of the implementation of the OSH Law, ie on the basis of the proposals and the perceptions of the social partners, it will be taken up if the law should be changed or a new OSH law is required. In CCM activities are underway to review the situation from the application of the Law on OSH primarily in the companies and on the basis of the obtained data SSM will give its proposal regarding the necessary changes in the legislation in this area.

At the same time, PIC is that the full exercise of rights in terms of providing healthy and safe working conditions depends on the advancement of collective bargaining primarily in companies. There is a small number of KDs at the level of the employer or CD at branch level, that is, the activity that regulates these issues. Our goal in the next period will be to promote collective bargaining in this direction, that is, we will strive for all OSH issues to be covered and regulated by CD.

Cooperation and joint activities with the inspection bodies, the civil sector, the scientific and expert public are also significant. CCM is open for cooperation and joint action with all institutions responsible for creating safe working conditions for workers. In that sense, representatives of SSM participated in numerous workshops, forums and consultations on OSH issues.

Perspectively, the social partners and the civil sector should engage in increasing their own capacities and raising public awareness of the need to improve and promote occupational safety and health. This will be our priority in the upcoming period, and in that direction, CCM will continue with the continuous activity for enabling membership and trade union leadership on all issues from the aspect of OSH.
