Employment injury schemes are part of the social security branch in charge of the workers' insurance for occupational accidents and diseases. Traditionally, they provide for compensation and coverage of the medical and rehabilitation costs of the injured and sick workers. Increasingly, the prevention of the occupational risks is becoming part of the mandate of these schemes and many world-wide experiences and best practices show that these schemes can play very important role to this purpose. Through this workshop, the ILO intends to disseminate its international experience and facilitate knowledge sharing and discussion of selected innovative and successful strategies to promote OSH preventive and proactive approaches of the employment injury schemes.
