The International Labour Organization (ILO) celebrates the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on the 28th April to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally.


It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on emerging trends in the field of occupational safety and health and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities worldwide.

Each year the ILO chose a theme, over the past 11 years these have included; Health and life at work: A basic human right, My life, My work, my safe work: Managing risk in the work environment, Emerging risks and new patterns of prevention in a changing world of work and Prevention of occupational diseases. 2014’s theme is “Safety and health in the use of chemicals at work.”

HomeCareDirect is proud to endorse this campaign so all employees can continue to work safely.
