World Day for Safety and Health at Work

+ Add to my Calendar

This is an annual international campaign from the International Labour Organization (ILO) to promote safe, healthy and decent work.  

The day has also long been associated with the world's trade union movement's commemoration of the victims of occupational accidents and diseases.

Every year some two million men and women lose their lives through accidents and diseases linked to their work. In addition, there are 270 million occupational accidents and 160 million occupational diseases each year, incurring US$2.8 trillion in costs for lost working time and expenses for treatment, compensation and rehabilitation.

For more information, visit the ILO's webpage and the United Nations' website.

The ILO has produced a toolbox of resources and a set of fact sheets.
