Get Involved with World Day for Safety and Health at Work
World Day for Safety and Health at Work is an international workplace health and safety campaign promoted by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) on the 28th April every year. The purpose of the campaign is to promote health and safety at work around the globe.
According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), each year globally more than two million workers die as a result of workplace accidents and diseases.
The theme for this year is inspired by the International Labour Organization (ILO) 100 years of work. The official world day this year kick starts a wide range of activities and events taking place throughout the year promoting workplace health and safety, for more information and to get involved details can be found on the ILO website.
Workers’ Memorial Day
The 28th April every year is also Workers’ Memorial Day which is an international day of remembrance for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work. It is also a day to highlight that most workplace accidents and most cases of work-related ill health are preventable.
Workers’ Memorial Day was officially recognised in the UK for the first time in 2010. This year Trade Unions have arranged events throughout the UK to remember those killed or injured at work. For more information or to find an event near you visit the TUC website.
