Ratify ILO C176 on Mine Safety

There is a safety crisis in the mining industry. But a solution exists: ILO Convention 176 on Safety and Health on Mines.

This safety convention works by:

  • Getting countries to create a legal and inspection framework for mine safety
  • Requiring companies to create a safe working environment
  • Giving workers the right to independent safety representatives, and to refuse unsafe work

But ILO C176 has only been ratified by 31 countries - and many countries with the worst safety record have not signed up.

28 April is International Commemoration Day for Dead and Injured Workers.

On this day, mourn the dead, but fight for the living: tell your government to make mining safer by ratifying ILO Convention 176.
