World Day for Safety and Health at Work

World Day for Safety and Health at Work

The theme of the campaign of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2017 is "OPTIMIZE THE COLLECTION AND USE OF OSH DATA: Strengthening the foundations of a prevention culture".
 
The ILO aims at increasing awareness on the dimensions and consequences of work-related accidents and diseases, placing the health and safety of workers high in international agendas, and supporting action at all levels.

As data on work-related accidents and diseases are essential for prevention, there is a strong need to improve recording and notification systems as well as occupational safety and health (OSH) data collection and analysis at national level. This would provide countries with more reliable indicators of the effectiveness of national OSH systems and help them in prioritizing which OSH concerns should receive the sometimes scarce resources needed to resolve them.
 
Optimizing the collection of reliable data is essential for establishing priorities and improving national and workplace preventive programmes. Furthermore, the harmonization of national recording and notification systems would allow for global data collection and analysis for prevention purposes giving a more accurate picture of progress made in this field.
 
The annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally. It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on the magnitude of the problem and on how promoting and creating a safety and health culture can help reduce the number of work-related deaths and injuries.
 
The ILO celebrates the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on the 28 April to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally. It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on emerging trends in the field of occupational safety and health and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities worldwide.
 
With the celebration of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work, the ILO promotes the creation of a global preventative safety and health culture involving ILO constituents and all key stakeholders in this field. In many parts of the world, national authorities, trade unions, employers' organizations and safety and health practitioners organize activities to celebrate this date. We invite you to join us in celebrating this significant day and share with us the activities you organize.
