Ms. Nur Chariroh

Youth Champion, ILO, Indonesia

Nur Chariroh is an Indonesian Youth Champion for the ILO SafeYouth@Work projects. The ILO SafeYouth@Work project aims to promote occupational safety and health (OSH) for young workers, particularly those aged 15 to 24. Together with 124 Youth Champions in 23 countries, she participated in OSH workshops with Government officials, trade union representatives, employers’ organizations in developing actions, raising awareness on OSH for young people and increasing youth participation in decision making of OSH for youth policy at the national level.

As a result of Youth Champions’ work, she was invited to the Global South-South Development Expo organized in 2018 by the United Nations as the representative of Youth Champions to share her experiences and best practices in promoting OSH for young people. She believed that young workers are the future of work and nothing is better than building a culture of prevention starting with youth. Nur Chariroh also works as a Technical Project Translator for an IT Software Company. She had her Bachelor of Arts from Yogyakarta State University, Indonesia.


Youth Spotlight

Building on the SafeYouth@Work Congress held in Singapore in 2017, the Youth Spotlight is a lively, interactive session designed to spur global action to improve occupational safety and health (OSH) for young workers. This session will bring together youth champions around the world, policy makers and experts to reflect on how to engage youth into prevention and to integrate their voice and vision in building back better. It will also explore young workers’ expectations from institutional partners to continue supporting them in promoting OSH.

The Youth Spotlight is also closely connected with other program elements including the International Media Festival for Prevention, Braindates and keynote speeches where OSH for young workers will be highlighted, discussed and advanced.
