Labour Inspection in the workplace


The proper application of labour legislation is highly dependent on an effective and efficient labour inspectorate. Through ensuring the application of national labour laws, labour inspectors are able to improve conditions in the workplace by identifying gaps and loopholes thereby allowing national authorities to play an important role in ensuring that labour laws are applied equally to all employers and workers.

The increasing number of migrant workers in the region instigates the need for well trained labour inspectorates whose high performance levels would not only guarantee productivity but bring about an earlier realization of vision 2021.

The MECTD while focusing on international labour standards aims to offer trainings that improve the skills and capacities of stakeholders that make the work place safe and of a standard of excellence that is unmatched and desired to be emulated.
