DIRECTIVE

OF THE SECRETARIAT OF CPV CENTRAL COMMITTEE

On continuing to strengthen the Party's leadership for occupational safety and hygiene in new situation

 

After 10 years of implementing Directive No. 29-CT/TW, dated September 18, 2013, of the Secretariat on enhancing occupational safety and hygiene during the periods of industrialization, modernization, and international integration, significant positive outcomes have been achieved, with a decrease in the rate of serious occupational accidents. Awareness and responsibilities of Party committees, Party organizations, administration, agencies, organizations, enterprises, workers, and society have been elevated. Policies and laws on occupational safety and hygiene continue to be improved, extending their application to areas without labor relations. Risk prevention and assessment, control of hazardous factors, and care for workers' health, as well as improvements in working conditions and risk support mechanisms for enterprises and workers, have received increased attention. The state management responsibilities are strengthened; task assignment, decentralization, and close coordination are carried out between agencies, organizations and localities. International cooperation and integration are expanded; socialization is promoted; training services, technical inspection of occupational safety, and labor environment monitoring are developed.

However, occupational safety and hygiene efforts have not met requirements, with the number of occupational accidents not decreasing, and occupational diseases not receiving sufficient attention, especially in areas without labor relations. Some Party committees, administrations, enterprises, production and business establishments, and workers have not prioritized occupational safety and hygiene efforts. Investment resources and state management efforts remain limited, with insufficient emphasis on prevention, inspection, examination, supervision, detection, and handling of violations. Compliance with laws by workers and employers is lacking. Research and application of advanced science and technology in occupational safety and hygiene have not kept pace with practical needs.

To strengthen occupational safety and hygiene work in response to new requirements in line with the Resolution of the 13th Party Congress, the Socio-Economic Development Strategy, the goals of industrialization, modernization, and international integration, the Secretariat requires Party committees, Party organizations, administrations, the Vietnam Fatherland Front, and socio-political organizations to focus on leading and directing the effective implementation of several key tasks and solutions as follows:
