HSE's wider international role
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the tripartite UN agency that brings together governments, employers and workers of its member states in common action to promote decent work throughout the world.
HSE supports the Department for Work and Pensions in discussions with the ILO on matters relating to occupational safety and health, such as proposals for ILO Conventions or Recommendations, and providing feedback on the implementation of existing ILO Conventions and other instruments.
The International Association of Labour Inspection (IALI) is the global professional association for labour inspection. The UK is a member of IALI, represented by a senior official from HSE.
The main aims of IALI are:
- To promote the professionalism of its members on all aspects of labour inspection, so as to enhance their impact and effectiveness;
- To exchange ideas and experience about how best to promote compliance with labour law and good practice;
- To provide information to its members about professional issues;
- To promote closer collaboration between its members.
