Central Service

The UNGSC Central Service (CS) is responsible for ensuring that UNGSC premises are welcoming, environmentally sustainable, and continuously enhanced to serve UNGSC’s expanding array of clients and partners.

CS provides state-of-the-art Conference and Event Management services, special programmes in Occupational Health and Safety, as well as enabling and advisory support in human resources, procurement, property and facilities management, and finance.

Furthermore, CS acts in a capacitating role, to allow the two service delivery pillars, namely the Service for Geospatial, Information and Telecommunications Technologies (SGITT) and the Supply Chain Service (SCS), as well as the several entities co-located on UNGSC premises, to deliver their operational mandates.

Occupational Safety and Health Services

Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) services provide support and implementation of risk management programmes for field missions.

Services include technical advice; needs assessment; capacity building; monitoring; training; and the implementation of reporting systems. 

The UNGSC OSH team supports heads of UN entities in fulfilling their duty of care for staff safety and well-being, considering the specific contexts in which their organizations work. OSH services ultimately improve the working conditions and environments of UN personnel worldwide.

OSH works closely with the Division of Healthcare Management and Occupational Safety and Health (DHMOSH).
