World Day For Safety & Health At Work was established in 2003 by the International Labour Organization (ILO) with the goal of bringing awareness to the prevention of work-related accidents and diseases. Today, workplace incidents continue to be an urgent matter that all companies – regardless of industry – should place as a top priority.
With regulations, improvements, and continuous efforts, workplace injury rates have steadily declined since 1972 – but the work is far from done. World Day For Safety & Health At Work is an integral part of ILO’s Global Strategy on Occupational Safety and Health with the main focus on the advocacy of improving the health and safety of workers across the world and raising these issues to the political forefront.
