The World Day for Safety and Health at Work is held every year on April 28 to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases worldwide. Not only nationally, but internationally, attention is sought to promote and create a safety and health culture to reduce work-related deaths and injuries.
On today’s World Day, ILO (International Labor Organization) Director-General Guy Ryder and a panel of global leaders and high-level representatives from governments, employers and workers’ organizations, among others, are calling for more OSH measures to be implemented to prepare for crises such as COVID-19 and similar events.
Countries need to put in place robust and resilient OSH systems that would minimize risks to all people in the workforce in the event of future health emergencies, the International Labor Organization (ILO) said in a report released on World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
This requires investment in occupational safety and health infrastructure to protect workers’ safety and health and support companies’ business continuity.
Since its onset as a global crisis in early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has left deep scars everywhere. In addition to the healthcare and nursing sectors, many other workplaces are sources of COVID-19 outbreaks. Anywhere employees are in enclosed environments or in close proximity to each other, as well as shared spaces or transportation.
