    The equivalent of four plane crashes each and every day. This is how many people go out to work each day and don't return home because they die in a workplace accident. Thousands more die of work-related diseases. But these accidents and illnesses are preventable. Coordinated action at national and enterprise level is improving workplace safety and health, as well as directly benefiting business productivity, cost-saving and competitiveness.
