The ILO has developed over the years a wealth of OSH instruments and tools which could be of use for the protection of workers against COVID-19.
Workplaces can play an essential role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 by promoting protection measures to reduce the risk of infection. This, in turn, will help lessen the social and economic impact of the epidemic.
