IALI international challenge is to improve occupational health and safety and fair working conditions to deliver reductions in deaths, injuries, diseases, disputes and costs to business – as well as to promote human dignity, more productive workers and the right environment for business to thrive. In response to this challenge, it is proposed that IALI should take the first step in developing a new maturity of operation to consider and discuss an action plan for the future. This plan for 2008-2011 will aim to clarify IALI’s aims, actions and outcomes over this period.
The proposed strategic action plan for 2008-2011 and beyond are:
Action Area 1– IALI The professional association
Action Area 2– IALI as influencer
Action Area 3– IALI as partner
Action Area 4– IALI as catalyst
Action Area 5– IALI as facilitator
Action Area 6– IALI as source of technical expertise
