ISSA Guidelines on Prevention of Occupational Risks

The ISSA Guidelines on Prevention of Occupational Risks address occupational risks that are insured by social security institutions working on reducing occupational accidents and diseases. The Guidelines provide guidance on how social security institutions can develop, promote and conduct prevention activities with a view to reducing the number of work-related accidents and diseases and related compensation claims. The Guidelines offer social security institutions a comprehensive set of prevention concepts and tools to build up prevention capacities, infrastructures, programmes and activities, taking into account their specific national and institutional circumstances.
