SGIP, Trade Union of Civil Engineering, Industry for Construction Materials and Projection of Republic of Macedonia, continues to work on campaigns for health and safety at work as the most important segments in the scope of construction and building materials industry. Тhere are ongoing construction projects in the Republic of Macedonia, as the Corridor 8 and 10, where SGIP monitors the health and safety conditions, but this year SGIP will increase attendance at the corridors projects and start a campaign under the theme: "Health and Safety Always Comes First While Working." 

Meetings are planned with Sinohydro representatives as the main contractor and subcontractors in these infrastructure objects. Our goal and main focus this year will be the workers and workers' representatives for safety and health at work as well as organising and recruiting new members. Besides, trainings for workers and their safety and health represenatives at the workplaces are planned in order to raise awareness among workers with the aim to avoid injuries at work.
