The first webinar of the Task Force on Gender Equity (GE-TF) on the healthy and safe employment of women workers will be taking place on Thursday, 23 July 2020 from 16:00 – 18:00 CEST. Among the topics to be discussed are the new ‘Guidelines for the healthy and safe employment of women in the Ghanaian banana industry’ - produced under the framework of the WBF Banana Occupational Health and Safety Initiative - and their adaptation for other countries and regions.
In light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the WBF and its members are diligently working to implement the highest levels of health and safety standards on banana plantations in efforts to ensure the well-being of all workers in the industry.
