Delve is making 2021 the year of occupational health and safety for artisanal and small-scale miners around the world.

Building on a key reflection from the 2020 State of the ASM Sector Report that “investments in health and safety are urgently needed for ASM, since improved occupational health and safety (OHS) is a collective responsibility which is both feasible and beneficial to all”, we are extending an open call to interested stakeholders to join us to join us in this call towards collective responsibility and commitment to improving occupational health and safety for the 45 million artisanal and small-scale miners around the globe.

To learn more and express your interest in joining this commitment to OHS, please complete a short online survey by June 11th .

A meeting with organizations expressing interest will be convened the week of June 28th to introduce the campaign and solicit ideas.
