World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day

Wednesday 28 April 2021 is World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Worker's Memorial Day.  This day provides us an opportunity not only to raise awareness of safety and health in workplaces but to remember those who have died from a work-related injury or illness.

The International Labour Organisation annually sets a theme for the day.  This year's theme is Anticipate, prepare and respond to crises and invest now in resilient OHS systems which acknowledges the impact that the global COVID-19 pandemic has had on our working lives and the importance of building an effective, resilient, and adaptable WHS framework.
