On the 28th April the International Labour Organization celebrates the annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work

This celebration aims to promote the prevention of occupational accidents and health conditions globally. It is an awareness-raising campaign intended to focus international attention on Health and Safety challenges and on how promoting and creating a safe and healthy culture at work can help reduce the number of work-related injuries.

ICFO Health and Safety team works everyday to: promote occupational and personal safety of staff and visitors; provide information about potential hazards; identify and correct potential health and safety hazards; conduct activities about environmental impacts associated with research activities; and maintain a risk-based emergency management program inspired by international best practices.

This year, we want to celebrate and promote the World Day for Saftey and Health at ICFO too with activities (both online and in-person) organized to promote awareness on ICFO’s Safety guidelines and policies, as well as wellness tips to improve our health.
