Electromagnetic fields (EMF)

International Organizations


International Labour Organization (ILO)

ILO stands for the ideal of promoting social justice. It is a tripartite organization, with workers' and employers' representatives taking part in its work on equal status with those of governments. One of the main features of the ILO is its standard-setting activity. Some sixty international Conventions and Recommendations concern the protection of workers against occupational hazards. ILO has published in the Occupational Safety and Health Series a number of guides and manuals related to the occupational protection of workers exposed to electromagnetic fields.

ILO's objective to participate in the project is to promote the implementations of the principles embodied in the relevant International Labour Conventions and Recommendations and to ensure the involvement of employers' and workers' organizations in the implementations of the project so that the results of the project adequately reflect the needs of the workers. ILO's co-sponsorship is expected at the secretariat level and to a selected number of the project publications on an ad hoc basis.
