World Day for Safety and Health at Work is commemorated every year by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) on April 28. The ILO acknowledges the shared responsibility of key stakeholders and encourages them to promote a preventive safety and health culture to fulfil their obligations and responsibilities for preventing deaths, injuries and diseases in the workplace, allowing workers to return safely to their homes at the end of the working day.
The theme of the campaign for 2015 is ‘Join in building a culture of prevention on OSH’ (Occupational Safety and Health).
