Work situations that deny fundamental principles and rights at work or that put at risk the lives, health, freedom, human dignity or security of workers or subject households to conditions of poverty are unacceptable.

They have high economic, social and political costs for society in any country. Across all regions, some categories of workers are more vulnerable to being trapped into taking on unacceptable forms of work than others. The training activities of the Centre seek to better equip ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders to protect both women and men workers from unacceptable forms of work, with an emphasis on categories of workers for whom protection needs are acute, in particular women in global supply chains, and migrant, construction, agricultural and domestic workers. Special attention is paid to the fight against child labour, forced labour and trafficking.
