CCM during the past year has implemented a series of activities and realized several trainings through the regional trade union offices and subsidiaries.

In this regard, on 11.2.2016, at the Federation of Trade Unions, the President of CCM, PhD Zhivko Mitrevski held a press conference for the launching of the Project "Strengthening of the partnership of civil society and state institutions in the creation and promotion of the right to a safe and healthy working environment - Basic human right" that CCM shall realize together with the Macedonian Occupational Safety and Health Association (MOSHA).

The aim of this project is implementation of the provisions of the OHS Law and liabilities of the trade union OHS representatives.
On the press conference, the President of CCM, PhD Zhivko Mitrevski noted that the researches shall be conducted in 10 regions on the territory of Macedonia, Strumica, Veles, Kumanovo, Bitola, Stip, Kavadarci, Prilep, Ohrid, Gostivar, Kicevo, where trainings for all presidents of trade union organizations and OHS representatives shall be realized, for easier implementation of this law. Within the project civil society organizations shall be also involved in the area of fostering of the enhanced OHS measures, working together with employers for successful implementation of this important project. Also within this project several trainings with OHS experts shall be realized.

Our idea is to fully implement the amendments of the OHS Law, related to the legal obligation of the employers in the direction of compulsory opinion from the president of the trade union organization in the preparation of the OHS statement, participation of the president of the trade union organization in the gap analysis in determining OHS conditions, participation of the OHS representative and the president of TU organization in the process of purchasing new equipment or introducing new technologies, emphasized President Mitrevski.

Also, with the establishment of the Training Centre, CCM together with the branch unions shall provide direct opportunity for all workers to be able to attend such trainings and to receive certain certifications.

We hope that with these activities and measures we shall contribute as a union to improve the situation in providing safe working conditions for our workers and enforcement of the OHS law, emphasized President Mitrevski.

The last reporting period of the Labor Inspectorate for 2015, comprised information that there are over 243 reported workplace injuries and 4 deaths, which is a number that should not be neglected, so, in this way we try to act preventively and to ensure maximum prevention and protection at work.
