DATE June 9, 2011LEAVE A COMMENT

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is to mark this year’s World Day against Child Labour (June 12) with events in more than 50 countries, along with a new report on children in hazardous work.

The ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) will issue the study entitled “Children in hazardous work: what we know, what we need to do” for the day. The report analyzes the latest trends and estimates of children in hazardous work, and the risk to their health from such work as agriculture, mining, construction, manufacturing, domestic work and waste-picking.
