28th April ILO World Day for Safety and Health at Work
How about joining Safewell in supporting World Health and Safety day on April 28th 2018. As a nationwide leader in Health & Safety and Occupational Health services and support, we at Safewell believe that more awareness in these fields is key to making the working environment safer for all. This helps to reduce work related deaths, accidents and absences from work which ultimately cost companies hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year. 317 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work. The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted on 25 September 2015 includes a global plan of action with a number of specific targets involved. With its adoption, the capacity to collect and utilize reliable OSH data has also become indispensable for countries to fulfil their commitment to implement and report on some of the agenda’s 17 sustainable development goals and their targets.
This year, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (SafeDay) and the World Day Against Child Labour (WDACL) are coming together in a joint campaign to improve the safety and health of young workers and end child labour.
