Keeping food and food workers safe is even more complex during a global pandemic crisis and all stakeholders must contribute to maintaining 360° oversight of every aspect of the food supply chain. Food supply chain workers play an indispensable role in sustaining the movement of food along the supply chain. Therefore, keeping workers, production facilities, transport infrastructure and all other areas in the supply chain safe, is critical for mitigating the impacts of this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
As part of the comprehensive COVID-19 response and recovery programme, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and partners are working to prevent the pandemic from disrupting food systems. Concerted efforts on the food supply chain and more specifically the health and safety of workers, will help the most food insecure countries mitigate the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic and boost resilience for the long term by facilitating food and agricultural trade, preventing the spreading of any future zoonotic pandemic and helping the transition of the food systems towards sustainability. Component IV of FAO’s COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan is supporting awareness-raising and sensitization campaigns among food workers at all levels.
Follow along as experts from the International Labour Organization (ILO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), discuss issues surrounding occupational health and safety risks along the food supply chain. The discussions highlight global guidelines, as well as explore some mitigation experiences and key learnings from the most acutely food insecure contexts. This webinar seeks to:
• Reflect on the current occupational risks of workers along the food supply chain and the necessary measures to ensure that they are protected as well as to mitigate spread.
• Highlight gaps and occupational health and safety risks/challenges especially in the most acutely food insecure countries.
• Strengthen coordination and collaboration among relevant organizations to assist the flow of information from reliable sources.
