28 April World Safety And Health At Work Day by Omooba77: 7:41am On Apr 28, 2016
The annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases globally. It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on the magnitude of the problem and on how promoting and creating a safety and health culture can help reduce the number of work-related deaths and injuries. This year, “Workplace Stress: a collective challenge” is the theme.
United Nations' International Labour Organization in her 2008 paper release described Workplace Stress as a “global epidemic" and this year’s World Safety and Health at Work day, celebrated every April 28 is dedicated to champion this cause. The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Workplace Stress: A Collective Challenge” and is aimed at emphasizing the increasing need for urgent and pragmatic actions to tame the growing monster in workplaces – Workplace Stress.

According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE), United Kingdom Workplace Stress is defined as "The adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work." Workplace Stress has been identified to contribute to about half of all lost work days, thus making it a huge challenge to every establishment.
Research has shown that the line separating work from life is becoming more and more difficult to identify. Generally psychosocial risks such as increased competition, higher expectations on performance and longer working hours, are contributing to the workplace becoming a more stressful environment.

Many young men and women are dying to work stress related issues; wake early ,spend hours in traffic and sleep late. Weekends we are in one function, church or the other. The 'life of work' is longer than human life; let's be wise. God will keep us all

Most of the ranting we would hear today is just lip service.They don't care about the workers.

Same Routine every year.

Safety First. Our aim: an incident free workplace.

Here's one of my favorite safety quotes:

"We choose to have zero injuries. We choose to have zero injuries this day and do this, not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, because we care for ourselves and others too."
