ILO C188

Pillars of the Sea

Sea fishing remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. We are working with our social partner, Europêche, to make it safer. We are developing guidelines on medical examinations and the recruitment of migrant fishers. We are also pushing EU member states to implement international agreements that will make our seas a better place to work.
