International Workers Day
May Day, is celebrated on May 1, is a celebration of labourers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labour movement and occurs every year on May Day .
Most of us spend a considerable amount of time at our workplace, which is why it becomes important to maintain healthy standards there so as to avoid any kind of mis-happening at work. To create awareness among people about occupational accidents, World Day for Safety and Health at Work is observed.
This day was declared by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to focus on preventing occupational accidents and diseases globally. It is basically an awareness-raising campaign that highlights the emerging trends in occupational safety and health.
The theme set for this year's World Day for Safety and Health at Work is ‘Act together to build a positive safety and health culture’.
This theme focuses on encouraging workplaces to foster a strong work health and safety culture where everyone contributes to a safe and healthy work environment.
