A seminar on raising capacity in the implementation of international commitments on labour inspection was held in Ho Chi Minh City on February 16.
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has set up a system of international labour standards, conventions and recommendations drawn up by governments, employees, employers to regulate all labour issues.
Though actively joining the international labour standard system, the number of conventions ratified by Vietnam is still low compared to other countries in the region and the world.
According to ILO, Vietnam’s reports on labour are yet to give specific figures while analyses are not persuasive enough.
Experts suggested that Vietnam should change to a systematic inspection model instead of detailed inspection by focusing on hot issues, such as labour contracts, social insurance, workplace accidents and child labour.
They said labour inspectors should develop fine relationships with employers’ organisations as well as trade unions to facilitate the implementation of labour safety management in businesses and industries.
