ILO World Day for Safety and Health

Graham Marshall - Sunday, April 28, 2013

Today, Sunday April 28th 2013 marks the International Labour Organisation (ILO) World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

The ILO safety day is designated to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally.

The focus this in 2013 is on emerging trends in the field of OSH and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities worldwide.

The ILO estimates that out of 2.34 million occupational fatalities every year, only 321,000 are due to accidents.

The remaining workplace fatalities are due to occupational diseases which are by far the leading cause of work-related deaths worldwide.

In Australia the Risk Management Tool Box is highlighting the dual need to reduce workplace harm, while promoting a safe and speedy rehabilitation for workers injured on the job.
