World Day for Safety and Healthy at Work, 2011

The Labour Department invites everyone to commemorate World Day for Safety and Health at Work. This day is part of an annual campaign to promote safe, healthy and decent work that is held on the 28 April each year. Since 2003, the International Labour Organization (ILO) observes the World Day stressing the prevention of accidents, injuries and illnesses at work, capitalizing on its traditional strengths of tripartism and social dialogue.

 

This celebration is an integral part of the Global Strategy on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) of the ILO. One of the main pillars of the Global Strategy is advocacy, and the World Day for Safety and Health at Work is a significant tool to raise awareness on the importance of a work that is safe and healthy. 28 of April is also a day which the world's trade union movement has long associated with commemorating victims of occupational accidents and fatalities.

 

The theme for this year’s World Day for Safety and Health at Work is:

 

Occupational Safety and Health Management System:

A Tool for Continual Improvement

 

As with every year, ILO has prepared a report to serve as a background to this theme. This year’s report defines a preventive method to implement safety and health measures which consists of four steps and incorporates the principle of continual improvement. Its principles are based on the PDCA Cycle: PLAN, DO, CHECK, ACT. More information can be found in the report at the website www.ilo.org/safeday.
