World Day for Safety and Health at Work

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work is an annual international campaign to promote safe, healthy and decent work. It is held on 28 April and has been observed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) since 2003. 

“Safety and health in the use of chemicals at work“ is the theme for the 2014 World Day for Safety and Health at Work. Click here to read more.

Marking the day, an ILO report shows that while chemicals can be useful, necessary steps should be taken to prevent and control potential risks for workers, workplaces, communities and the environment. Click here to read the report.
