28th April marks the World Day for Health and Safety at Work. This campaign has been ongoing since 2003. The International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) annual day brings to attention the problem of injuries and accidents at the workplace. The day concentrates on how to promote a safe workplace culture and how you can reduce the number of work-related deaths and injuries.
This year the ILO’s campaign will focus on the critical need for countries to improve their capacity to collect and utilise reliable occupational safety and health (OSH) data. Recording this data can help to protect from and reduce workplace injuries.
Recently we wrote a blog on how to keep your office safe, you can read that here.
