This meeting should inspire those who work to achieve a healthy, safe and secure workplace for everyone. At the same time everyone should urgently renew the efforts needed to rid the world of child labour. We should all work to ensure that these young people each receive an education to enable them to live safely and healthy. And later enter the world of work that provides a healthy environment and does not tolerate accidents, fatalities and ill health.
