Then BHOS Labor Protection and Security Techniques Engineer Khanim Aghasiyeva made a report. She informed that this year, the SafeDay aims at eliminating child labor and promoting a culture of prevention on occupational safety health (OSH)and that the theme for the 2018 World Day for Safety and Health at Work is: “OSH vulnerability of young workers”. In her words, many factors can increase youth vulnerability to OSH risks, such as lack of work experience and training, and limited awareness of work-related hazards. Thus, the 2018 SafeDay campaign highlights the critical importance of addressing these challenges, said Khanim Aghasiyeva. She emphasized that the state policy conducted in Azerbaijan in the field of labor protection and legislation applied in the republic aim to ensure implementation of safety rules and procedures in every organization.
