Aiming to resolve the problems in construction industry, such as high work-related injury risks, flexible employment and high mobility of construction workers, China has implemented the Same-Boat Programme, a specific social insurance extension programme for construction industry workers. The programme requires the construction industry to join the social insurance coverage in terms of each building project, exploring a new coverage pattern of dynamic real-name registration management. At present, the insurance registration rate of building projects has exceeded 98 per cent, and over 40 million person times have been brought under the work injury insurance coverage. The rights and interests of workers with work-related injuries have been effectively protected. In 2018, building projects related with railway, highway, water transport, water conservancy, energy and airport will also be covered by the work injury insurance system.
In the context of the ISSA, a good practice is defined as any type of experience (e.g. an action, a measure, a process, a programme, a project, or a technology) implemented within a social security organization that fosters the improvement of its administrative and operational capacities, and/or the efficient and effective delivery of programmes. The good practices selected by the ISSA focus on topics related to the priorities as defined in the programme and budget of the Association. The good practices are from member institutions of the ISSA and are primarily collected through the work of the ISSA Technical Commissions and the ISSA Good Practice Awards.
