The roundtable discussion is organised against the pressing background of the war in Ukraine, which continues to result in significant challenges and serious threats to the health and safety of the Ukrainian people as they try to rebuild critical infrastructure in their workplaces.  Many workers will be forced to work in jobs in which they have limited training and experience exposing them to risks, and appropriate OSH education will be key in preventing injury and ill-health at work.

The aim of the roundtable is to engage the participants to share ideas towards a formulation of a more coordinated and efficient rapid OSH response mechanism to capacity building, in case of future emergencies, with a particular focus on Ukraine.
