  3. What is your country capacity related to each of the necessary conditions?

  4. Has government addressed safety and health issues with regard to high risk occupations in sectors such as agriculture, forestry, fisheries, mining, and construction in global supply chains?

  5. Has government taken measures to improve working conditions in the informal economy and for home-based workers, to eliminate work under hazardous and unhealthy conditions?

  6.  Are the country’s workers’ and employers’ organizations actively involved in the development and implementation of the safety and health programme?
