JILAF invited a total of 14 persons (including 7 women) from 13 organizations in 8 countries to visit Japan from July 11 to 15.
Unlike the usual invitation program teams, the All Asia Team came to Japan after training at the International Labour Organization's training center in Turin, Italy, with the aim of deepening the participants' understanding of workplace environment improvement.
In the labour-related lectures, the participants eagerly engaged in discussions on topics that especially interested them, including the role and issues of the labour movement in Japan, labour-management relations in Japan, and Japan's labour and social legislation.
The participants also received a lecture at the ILO's Japan Office titled "Efforts toward Improvement of the Workplace Environment." The participants made many positive comments, such as, "I would like to introduce Japan's efforts to maintain industrial health and safety in my own country."
In the workplace visit, the participants went to the Oppama Plant of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., which is under the umbrella of Jidosha Soren (Confederation of Japan Automobile Workers' Unions). Here they got a firsthand look at efforts to improve the workplace environment at a workplace in the manufacturing industry. The participants also engaged in lively discussions with executives of the Oppama branch of Nissan Motor's labour union, comparing the situation relating to industrial health and safety in their own countries and the efforts of the Nissan labour union.
