Today, April 28th, is World Day for Safety & Health at Work. A good time to bring everyone’s attention to this issue. In 2022, the ILO (International Labour Organization) will explore the topic of participation and social dialogue in creating a positive safety and health culture. Let’s ACT together!
SAFETY & HEALTH at WORK CULTURE
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen that having a strong occupational safety & health culture, which includes meaningful participation of governments, employers, workers, public health actors and all relevant parties at the national and enterprise level, has been crucial in protecting working environments and safeguarding the safety and health of workers. Participation and social dialogue are built on inclusion, where workers feel comfortable raising concerns about risks or hazards in the workplace, and management is proactive in collaborating with workers to find appropriate, effective and sustainable solutions. This requires open communication and dialogue built on trust and mutual respect.
As we continue to live through a global health crisis and face ongoing occupational safety & health risks in the world of work, we must continue to move toward building a strong safety and health culture at all levels.
