World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Join in building a culture of prevention on OSH

Join us on the 28th of April at 14:30 to celebrate the World Day for Safety and Health at Work together!

A national occupational safety and health culture is one in which the right to a safe and healthy working environment is respected at all levels, where governments, employers and workers actively participate in securing a safe and healthy working environment through a system of defined rights, responsibilities and duties, and where the highest priority is accorded to the principle of prevention.
