World Safety and Health at Work Day is celebrated on April 28th every year to promote safe, healthy, and decent work worldwide. The day highlights the importance of ensuring the safety and health of workers and their workplaces, raising awareness of preventable occupational accidents and diseases that occur globally.
The celebration of this day is essential because ensuring safety and health at work is crucial to the well-being and productivity of workers, their families, and their communities. Unsafe work environments can lead to injuries, illnesses, and even death, causing physical, emotional, and financial harm to workers and their loved ones. Therefore, the day serves as a reminder to employers, workers, and governments to prevent workplace accidents and illnesses and promote healthy work environments.
By promoting safety and health at work, we can create a more sustainable and productive world that benefits not only workers but also businesses and society.
