Every year, on April 28th, the World Day of Safety and Health at Work is celebrated to promote safe, healthy, and secure working environments. World Day of Safety and Health provides an opportunity for companies and organizations to raise year-round awareness about the importance of creating safe and healthy working environments and honor the workers who have been injured or lost their lives due to work-related accidents or illnesses.
Why is World Day of Safety & Health at Work Important?
The International Labor Organization (ILO) reports that approximately 2.3 million people die annually from work-related accidents and diseases worldwide, while 160 million workers are affected by non-fatal accidents. These statistics indicate the critical importance of creating safe and healthy working environments that ensure the well-being of employees.
Companies that prioritize the safety and health of their workforce minimize the risk of accidents and fatalities and enhance productivity, motivation, and job satisfaction. Moreover, by creating a positive work culture that values the safety and health of their employees, companies attract and retain talent and improve their brand reputation and community relations.
