GUIDE/MANUAL

A manual produced by the ILO's International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (ILO-IPEC) in collaboration with the General Agricultural Workers' Union (GAWU of GTUC) to serve as an essential training tool for workers in the rural communities, especially farmers, to promote and ensure safety at the work place. It is one of IPEC's strategies in working with workers' representatives and employers' organizations to help ensure that work is safe for all. The production of this farmer-friendly manual fits under a new generation of ILO-IPEC projects in West Africa namely “Towards Child Labour-Free Cocoa Communities in d'Ivoire and Ghana through Integrated Area-Based Approach” financed by the United States Department of Labor and “Combating Child Labour in Cocoa-Growing Communities in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire” financed by the Global Issues Group (GIG).
