Annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28th April, promotes the prevention of any occupational accidents and diseases across the globe. The World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2022, focuses on enhancing social dialogue towards a culture of safety and health.

It was first proclaimed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in 1994 and the day has been celebrated in more than 160 countries around the world ever since. This day is a time to reflect on the lives lost, injuries sustained, and economic losses that have occurred due to unsafe working conditions. This day is also an opportunity to look forward to what can be done to prevent future incidents.

The ILO has set out three objectives for the day:

  • To improve occupational safety and health standards, legislation, and practices;
  • To support initiatives to promote dialogue, cooperation, and partnerships between workers, employers, and governments;
  • To encourage companies to sign the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization.

This year, we’re honoring our hardworking safety professionals who are out there every day keeping us safe.
