1. Background

Safety + Health for All Workers in Myanmar Project

Safety + Health for All (SFHA) in Myanmar’s ultimate objective is for workers in Myanmar to be safer and healthier. To reach this ultimate goal in the current context, the project is implementing holistic approach towards 1) social partners and educational institutions to implement programmes to address OSH issues, and 2) workers increasingly demanding safety and healthy workplaces. The project is also being implemented in the framework of the ILO OSH ProjectPortfolio at the ILO Liaison Office in Yangon.

As part of the broader programme, the project will be supporting the mainstreaming of OSH into TVET education in order to promote a culture of prevention. This particular activity will focus on supporting the development and strengthening of OSH modules into a private Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institution in Myanmar with a particular focus on OSH.

Myanmar’s Context

The Government of Myanmar established the Comprehensive Education Sector Review (CESR) in2012 and aimed to identify sector priorities, challenges and strategic options in strengthening the education system. One of the areas integrated in CESR is the TVET education, which cover a wide range of technical occupations, including electrical, electronic, metal, vocational skills among others. Each program is coordinated and financed by the relevant Ministry. The overall responsibility of TVET in Myanmar is divided among 19 ministries.

The wide coverage of vocational education opens the door to reach significant numbers of future workers with OSH knowledge and information. By mainstreaming OSH content into TVET curriculum, student would be equipped with OSH knowledge and safe work practices. Additionally, the 2016 Myanmar Data Collection Survey on Technical and Vocational Education and Training by JICA and the 2014 Assessment Study of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Myanmar identified inadequate safety education and knowledge among the employees and the need to incorporate safety education in TVET curriculum.

Given the recent developments in Myanmar, the integration of OSH content into TVET curriculum will be channelled through the private TVET institution in Myanmar.
