World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2016
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) observes the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on the 28 of April . The theme for 2016 is, “Workplace Stress: a collective challenge”.
In recent years, there has been growing attention to the impact of psychosocial risks and work-related stress among researchers, practitioners and policy makers. Work-related stress is now generally acknowledged as global issue affecting all countries, all professions and all workers both in developed and developing countries. In this complex context, the workplace is at the same time an important source of psychosocial risks and the ideal venue to address them in order to protect the health and well-being of workers. The ILO report will draw attention to current global trends on work-related stress and its impact.
