The ILO marks the 28th April 2020 as the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
Currently, concern is growing over the continuing rise in COVID-19 infections in some parts of the world and the ability to sustain declining rates in others.
Beyond the immediate crisis, there are also concerns about resuming business activity in a manner that sustains progress made in suppressing the transmission.
A challenge such as that posed by the COVID-19 pandemic can only be overcome collectively through a global and coordinated response that sees strong social dialogue and cooperation among all individuals at all levels. Many aspects need to come together to mitigate the impact of this health crisis on the world of work, and Occupational Safety and Health remains a key investment case to protect workers’ health and ensure business continuity.
"Safe and Healthy working conditions are fundamental to decent work”.
This is even more significant today, as ensuring safety and health at work is indispensable in the management of the pandemic and the ability to resume work.
Therefore, my appeal to everyone would be focused towards a thorough compliance to the Safety and Health measures.
It is only by implementing occupational safety and health measures that we can protect the lives of workers, their families and the larger communities, ensure work continuity and economic survival.
How we protect ourselves will dictate how safe our communities are, and how resilient our businesses will be, as this pandemic evolves.
