World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Join in building a culture of prevention on OSH

The theme of the campaign for 2015 is: Join in building a culture of prevention on OSH

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.

This year, we will improve the SafeDay web page with new and user-friendly information to design your own campaign. You will be able to download a number of other key documents including the trilingual poster. However there will not be a report as in previous years. We invite you to visit our interactive web page as from beginning of April 2015. Please keep us informed on the activities that you will develop in this context.


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.
