The project “enhancing the capacity of the State Labour Inspectorate” is a sub-project of the World Bank ‘Social Protection Development Project’ (SPDP) launched in October 2008 with a total estimated fund of $54.6 million (IDA $26.7 million and Government $27.9 million) and implemented both by the MLSPP and the State Social Protection Fund (SSPF) over a period of 4.5 years. This sub-project – specifically developed to enhance the State Labour Inspectorate - comprises five main objectives, which can be summarised as:Reinforcing occupational safety and health legislation and standardsCreating adequate conditions for social dialogue at national and enterprise levelStrengthening capacity of the Sate Labour Inspectorate to operate their missions according to an integrated and preventive approachModernising the central laboratory and regional occupational safety laboratoriesPromoting health and safety at the work place and raising public awareness on occupational health and safety. The achievement of these objectives would contribute to supporting a government-wide approach to improve labour market and social protection through the development of the capacities of the State Labour Inspectorate to ensure safety and healthy working conditions and to modernise the OS&H system. The main beneficiary is the State Labour Inspectorate which operates under the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of Population (MLSPP) - the Contracting Authority.
