OSH Bill Amendments Approved by Cabinet

The issue of occupational safety and health has been a concern for many in the private and public sectors.  On several occasions, we have reported on persons being injured or losing their lives while on the job.  The National Trade Union Congress of Belize has long been clamoring for the passage of the OSH Bill.  Earlier today, Cabinet issued a release announcing that it has approved workplace safety measures through OSH Bill amendments.  The move draws attention to the Ministry of Labor’s efforts to prioritize the welfare and safety of the workforce.  In November and December of last year, various consultations and sensitization meetings were held with a range of stakeholders in partnership with the OSH working group.  At the end of January, the proposed amendments were submitted to Cabinet and were later approved.  The Attorney General’s Ministry is in the process of revising the bill before it is presented to the House of Representatives.
