Suzanne Scott Contributes to Expansion of International Labour Organization LEGOSH Database

Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 10:15

PhD candidate within the Department of Law, Suzanne Scott, has been working as part of the European Law Students’ Associations’ Legal Research Group on Labour Law to assist the International Labour Organization (ILO) in completing the LEGOSH database, the ILO Global database on occupational safety and health legislation.
The LEGOSH database is an internationally recognised legal source; it compiles the wealth of legislation in occupational safety and health and serves as a snapshot of the current major national legislative requirements around the globe.
The report has now been finalised and the completed database entry for Ireland can be viewed on the ILO website. Prior to this project, Ireland did not feature in the LEGOSH database.
Suzanne is a John and Pat Hume Doctoral Award recipient, carrying out victim-centred research on human trafficking for forced labour in Ireland in collaboration with Migrant Rights Centre Ireland. She is supervised by Dr David Doyle.
