World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2023

World Day for Safety and Health at Work falls on 28th April each year and this year’s theme is: A safe and healthy working environment as a fundamental principle and right at work.

The key aim of World Day for Safety and Health at Work is to raise awareness of workplace safety and health issues, as well as promote international cooperation and collaboration on these important issues.

The day is recognised by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), a specialised agency of the United Nations that is responsible for setting international labour standards and promoting social justice and decent working conditions around the world.

It is marked by governments, employers and workers across the globe, who come together to share knowledge and best practices, and to take action to improve working conditions for all.

At STC, we believe that safety is everyone's responsibility and we put it before profit and at the heart of everything we do. Health and Safety is also a large part of our business as we deliver around 25 different courses across a range of topics and sectors.

Health and safety training is an important investment for employers, workers, and society as a whole. By ensuring that workers are aware of potential hazards, able to comply with legal and regulatory requirements, and take responsibility for their own safety and that of their colleagues, employers can create a safer and more productive workplace.

Investing in the right health and safety training for your organisation will result in a range of benefits:

  • Prevent accidents and injuries: Health and safety training helps workers identify and avoid potential hazards in the workplace. This can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, which not only protects workers from harm, but can also improve productivity and reduce costs associated with lost time and workers' compensation claims.

  • Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements: There are laws and regulations governing workplace health and safety; by investing in training, employers can ensure that their workers are aware of these requirements and able to comply with them.

  • Promote a culture of safety: Training can help create a culture of safety in the workplace, where workers understand the importance of safety and take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, as well as those around them.

  • Improved morale and job satisfaction: Workers who feel safe and secure in their jobs are likely to be more satisfied and motivated, leading to improved morale and productivity.

  • Reduction in costs: Implementing health and safety measures can be expensive, but the costs of accidents and injuries would be much higher. By investing in health and safety training, employers can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, which could save money in the long run.
