Investing in OSH Infrastructure: World Day for Safety and Health at Work

About the event

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent need to establish a sound and resilient occupational safety and health (OSH) system. The aim of this system is to build a capacity to face future emergencies and their related challenges and to protect all workers’ safety and health. This system should also help support the survival and business continuity of enterprises.

This global discussion on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (Safe Day) will explore the importance of investing in safety and health at work in order to more effectively respond to emergencies and crises affecting workplaces.
