Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Most factories in Indonesia have no clear policies with regard to occupational health and safety, according to the International Labor Organization (ILO) in a press release here on Saturday.

The ILO said in its press statement that through its Better Work Indonesia program, it was giving attention to the prevention of fire as part of the occupational health and safety at the factories of its partners.

The organization made the press statement in connection with the occasion of commemorating the Occupational Health and Safety Day on April 28.

Studies it carried out through the Better Work Indonesia program recently found that 21 of 35 factories did not have clear policies on occupational health safety (OHS).

The companies did not either conduct routine assessments of the danger and impact of occupational health and safety.

This was viewed to cause no less number of employees who were prone to fire and occupational accident risks.
