world day for Safety and Health at Work will take place on April 28, 2021. The day of action was introduced by the International Labor Organization (ILO) to promote safe, healthy and decent work. People around the world are exposed to health and safety risks through their work. The ILO estimates that around 6,000 people die every day from work-related accidents or illness. Safety and health at work are therefore a concern of governments, employers, workers and their families.
Occupational health and safety is understood to mean the measures, means and methods for protecting employees from work-related health and safety hazards. The desired goal is accident prevention and the protection of employees. Occupational safety deals, among other things, with the prevention of occupational accidents, the reduction of their consequences, health protection and personal protection at work.
