  9. Message by Juan Somavia, Director-General of the International Labour Office, on the occasion of World Day for Safety and Health at Work, 28 April 2008

    28 April 2008

    Labour is not a commodity and markets must serve people. Nearly 90 years ago the protection of workers’ lives and health was set out as a key objective in the founding charter of the Organization. Today, rapid technological change and a fast-paced and globalized economy bring new challenges and pressures for all areas of the world of work. Safety and health remain integral elements of the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda.

  10. Slideshow: My life, my work, my safe work - Managing Risk in the Work Environment

    28 April 2008

    Every year more than 2 million people die from occupational accidents or work-related diseases. "Injury and disease are not 'all in a day's work'", says ILO Director-General Juan Somavia. "Fatalities, accidents and illness at work can be prevented. We must promote a new 'safety culture' in the workplace - wherever work is done - backed by appropriate national policies and programmes to make workplaces safer and healthier for us all." The promotion of occupational safety and health is one of the means to make Decent Work a global reality.

  12. Global strategy on occupational safety and health: Conclusions adopted by the International Labour Conference at its 91st Session, 2003

    01 January 2004

    The Conference Conclusions outline a global strategy on occupational safety and health. They confirm the role of ILO instruments as a central pillar for the promotion of occupational safety and health. At the same time they also call for integrated action that better connects the ILO standards with other means of action such as advocacy, awareness raising, knowledge development, management, information dissemination and technical cooperation to maximize impact. The Conclusions pinpoint the need for tripartite national commitment and national action in fostering a preventive approach and a safety culture which are key to achieving lasting improvements in safety and health at work.
