Saturday 28 April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day.
This is an important date for focusing on safety and health in your workplace and to honour those who have died from work-related injury or illness.
This year we encourage you to promote Generation Safe and Healthy, focusing on the workplace health and safety of young workers and future generations.
We recognise that young workers have an increased risk of workplace injury due to their lack of experience, maturity and awareness of work health and safety responsibilities.
We are encouraging employers, supervisors and other leaders to provide the right tools and training and to empower young workers to have the confidence to speak up about safety and health in the workplace.
