JICA formulated "Safety Policy for Construction Works in Japanese ODA Projects" in order to promote safety and protecting human life in construction works.
JICA formulated "The Guidance for the Management of Safety for Construction Works in Japanese ODA Projects" which compiles basic principles and technical measures on the management of safety for construction works in order to prevent and reduce occupational accidents on ODA construction works.
