2006: DECENT WORK - SAFE WORK - HIV/AIDS

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work is intended to focus international attention on promoting and creating decent, safe work. The ILO aims to reduce the number of work-related deaths each year, including those resulting from HIV/AIDS, and to make work decent by eliminating workplace stigma and discrimination related to HIV/AIDS. This year, as in previous years, tripartite events are taking place world wide, and a number of products are available from this web page to support those efforts. You are invited to join us in promoting this important day.

History of 28 April
In 2003, the ILO began to observe World Day stressing the prevention of illness and accidents at work, capitalizing on its traditional strengths of tripartism and social dialogue. 28 April is also a day the world's trade union movement has long associated with commemorating victims of occupational accidents and disease.
