World Day for Safety and Health at Work: 28 April 2016

We are proud to celebrate the World Day for Safety and Health at Work with the International Labour Organisation (ILO). We believe that the theme of this year “Workplace Stress – A Collective Challenge” is relevant all over the world.

The International Commission of Occupational Health, ICOH, calls for action to manage stress and psychosocial risks factors at work. While individual workers around the world are affected, we should concentrate on measures at the level of workplace or organisation.

ICOH President, Dr. Takala, stated the ICOH declaration for the World Day for Safety and Health at Work of 28 April 2016.

The ICOH would like to congratulate ILO for an excellent and comprehensive report on Workplace Stress.
