WORLD DAY FOR SAFETY AND HEALTH AT WORK
“Anticipate, prepare and respond to the crisis – INVEST IN RESILIENT OSH SYSTEMS”
Every 28th of April, Uganda joins the rest of the world to observe the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
The day is an awareness raising campaign intended to focus attention on emerging trends in the field of occupational safety and health (OSH) and on the magnitude of work-related injuries, disease and fatalities worldwide.
Over the past one year, COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected nearly every aspect of the world of work, from the risk of transmission of the virus in workplaces, to OSH risks that have emerged as a result of measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.
In addition to the threat to public health, the economic and social disruption threatens long-term livelihoods and wellbeing of millions of Ugandans.
