8.7 Occupational health and safety guidelines, Uganda

The Uganda Ministry of Works, Housing and Communications' guidelines for occupational health and safety (OHS) were developed to help translate OHS policy into action in the roads sector institutions, policies, plans, programmes and budgets. The document incorporates district guidelines.

The objective of the guidelines is to strengthen capacity to mainstream OHS in the roads sector. Mainstreaming OHS will reduce work-related hazards, injuries and illnesses and improve the well-being of workers and the quality of their work environment. The process of developing the guidelines involved consultations with roads sector stakeholders at both the national and local government levels.

The guidelines draw on good practices for mainstreaming OHS in other sectors, programmes and projects in Uganda and elsewhere. The guidelines provide clear step-by-step tools and methods to address OHS in planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating activities in the roads sector. Included in the guidelines is a checklist that can be used for monitoring compliance.
