About STCCI & ILO

International Labour Organisation (ILO): In 2001, the International Labor Organization published ILO-OSH 2001, also titled "Guidelines on occupational safety and health management systems" to assist organizations with introducing OSH management systems. These guidelines encourage continual improvement in employee health and safety, achieved via a constant process of policy, organization, planning & implementation, evaluation, and action for improvement, all supported by constant auditing to determine the success of OSH actions.

As the UN organization responsible for providing guidance and guidelines for occupational Health and Safety, ILO is partnering STCCI in this event. During GEISCon 2016, the ILO will officially launch the SCORE (Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises) Program in the Western and Central Regions of Ghana. SCORE is a practical training and in-factory counselling program that improves productivity and working conditions.

The Five core training modules cover Workplace Cooperation, Quality Management, Clean Production, Human Resource Management and Safety and Health. The training focuses on cooperative workplace relations to produce shared benefits for workers and enterprise owners by developing a continuous improvement culture.
