Tuesday 28th April is the World Day for Safety and Health at Work

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) marks its World Day for Safety and Health at Work on or around 28th April each year. World Day is an international campaign to promote safe, healthy and decent work around the globe.

Flagship is very supportive of the ILO’s promotion of this day, which will be recognised by a number of events taking place around the world. The ILO continues to do important work on occupational safety and health, especially in the developing world.
