A delegation from Mongolia with governmental OSH experts joined a workshop on legal frameworks and institutional settings for occupational safety and health and accident insurance.

Commissioned by GIZ / Mongolian Ministry of Labour
Cooperation Partners IAG of DGUV, BAuA/ NAK, KAN
Location Dresden, Germany
No. of Participants 9
Year 2016


The workshop is a follow-up measure of an IAG training for Mongolia on the ISSA Guideline on Prevention of Occupational Risks, which took place in January 2016. Both actions are part of the Integrated Mineral Resources Initiative (IMRI) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the GIZ.

Training Approach and Contents

The training approach consisted in a SWOT-analysis of the Mongolian social security system: Strengths, opportunities, challenges and threats were analysed by networking with practitioners from DGUV, BAuA and KAN on the following subjects:

  • accident insurance
  • labour inspection and prevention of occupational risks
  • standardization and regulations
  • strategies for safety and health at work


The participants developed an action plan with suggestions how to streamline the institutional settings of the social accident insurance in Mongolia and how to specify the conditions of rehabilitation and prevention by law. Knowledge transfer into practice was provided by a guided visit of the underground ore mine “Reiche Zeche” at the Saxon Erz Mountains.

Outlook and Sustainability

The action plan is structured in four main parts: vision, mission, operative goals and tools. The delegation will develop the action plan further together with various Mongolian stakeholders and discuss its political realm in Mongolia. A joint follow-up meeting with experts from the DGUV is envisaged for autumn 2016.
