Protect mental health in the workplace during Covid-19

Work arrangements and conditions have changed considerably during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The world of work has been profoundly affected by the global virus pandemic. In addition to the threat to public health, the economic and social disruption threatens the long-term livelihoods and wellbeing of millions.

This has brought new psychosocial challenges for the health and well-being of workers.

Virtually gathered at the 109th International Labour Conference, ILO's constituents – Governments, workers, and employers – have adopted a Global Call to action for a human-centred recovery from the COVID-19 crisis that is inclusive, sustainable, and resilient.

An ILO guide contains the key elements needed to protect the health and well-being of workers.
