Dr Shahidur Rahman, Associate Professor of ESS, has been awarded a project by International Labor Organization (ILO). The project is to develop National Plan of Action on Occupational Safety and Health. The National Plan of Action (NPA) has been undertaken as a response to the commitment of the Bangladesh Government, development partners, NGOs and civil society to create a roadmap for ensuring that the Occupational Safety and Health is successfully implemented. Initially this project will be implemented to five sectors – agriculture, RMG, construction, leather and ship breaker industry; later will be extended to other sectors including informal economy. Dr Shahidur has already signed the contract with ILO and is working closely with Ministry of Labor and Employment.
